@elb It's the stock TERM program on the CP/M boot disk. It emulates ADM3A

@robert588 Huh, I didn't know it even had that on the boot disk.

Interesting that it emulates ADM-3A when the console emulation is TV910! (Or 915 or something?)

@elb This is a Kaypro 4, not sure if Kaypro 2 came with the same terminal or not.

@robert588 Oh ... I meant the Osborne 1! I don't have a Kaypro ... YET.

@elb Oh I didn't read your message carefully! The Osborne is running Kermit and emulating VT52.

@robert588 OK, Kermit is what I use, too. Getting it on there in the first place was a little bit of a trick, but it's good to go now. I also have ... whatever the official O1 term program was (I forget the name), but it's really designed for the modem and I don't have one of those.

@elb I use a wifi modem emulator. I made a tutorial of how to make on on my youtube channel : youtu.be/cfLNiBDwlL8

A story which needs to be told!

@elb @robert588

@EdS @robert588 Sadly it wasn't a super _interesting_ method, I just had to power up an old PC that had a floppy drive and image a disk. Maybe "trick" was not the right word.

I tried a number of times to break an assembly language file up into smaller pieces and copy it over using PIP, but for whatever reason I was not successful; there were always corruptions, missing data, etc. I'm sure it can be done with a better-paced sender, but the convenient minicom settings were not enough.

@elb @EdS I've heard of people sending files to CPM machines through Kermit/Xmodem using Hyperterminal in Windows. Haven't tried it yet but sounds like it should work.

@robert588 @EdS Once Kermit was installed, I have been able to use gkermit without issue. Presumably there's some sort of Windows software that would do it, too.
