mtconv is to be a "screen" type intermediary for Model Ts interacting with a bash session.
+
 
+
== Details ==
+
 
+
* Perform mappings between the Model T character sets to/from Unicode
+
* Detect TPDD 'ZZ' escapes to enter into the TPDD disk mode
+
* Detect "human speed" space characters to exit from TPDD mode back to interactive mode
+
* Handle both the T102/T200 and the M100 character set
+
* Configure termcap settings for the pty, including Width x Height dependent upon laptop model
+
* mtconv will "wire-up" the external LaddieAlpha program dynamically at runtime to handle TPDD I/O
+
* Filter out color escapes
+
 
+
== Larger Goals ==
+
 
+
mtconv is to be a key part of a MTIS "Model T Internet Service". Model Ts will connect through the Internet to individual accounts on the MTIS. MTIS will support email, IRC, simple search, web browsing, and file storage.
+
 
+
Connection to MITS will normally occur via a serial->Internet bridge device.
+
 
+
The Serial->Internet bridge is out of scope for MITS. Possibilities include
+
 
+
* Wired connection to PC or host laptop
+
* A Bluetooth dongle + cell phone bridge app
+
* A Wifi+TCP/IP intefaced via expansion port to Model T
+
* RS232<->Wifi bridge
