Making a 6502 VT100 Terminal (?)

A project log for 65uino

6502 based learning in a familiar form factor

Technically I might be redoing a lot of things that have been done before - some of them poorly even - but I like to learn new things and I don't mind sharing what I learned, even if it does sometimes expose my cluelessness :) 

My last two videos on the #65uino project has focused on making it a bit more friendly as an old school computer terminal - and I used an old Raspberry Pi Zero W as an example of something that'll spit out VT100/ANSI compatible serial text, since I don't have a mainframe lying around to connect to. 

I considered it a bit of a side quest, since I'd rather code Flappy Bird or something like it for the 65uino, but I got in the awkward situation of starting something I didn't want to leave hanging mid air. 

I think I managed to round it off a bit after going through what hardware and software flow control is for serial data, but if I find an easy way of implementing a few more control codes I might go for it and expand a bit further.. 

Either way - I'm certainly not any kind of done with the 65uino.
