CP/M 2.2/3.0 Terminal test program with self editable terminal definitions

Vintage Computing

To figure out what Terminal (aka what Terminal control sequences) for an less known CP/M system is needed, I wrote a small terminal test program. It’s useful because sometimes you have to configure WordStar or other full screen editors for systems without build-in terminal emulation, means if you have such a system like a S-100 bus system, or something like a Micromint SB180, which needs also an external Terminal to show their console (output) via a serial interface.
When started, it looks like this:

Just press a digit key with a (predefined) terminal definition, and you will see if you get a nice or an ugly screen output (depends if you choosed the right terminal or not).
This is the output if everything is ok:

The definitions are stored in a text file named „TESTTERM.COD“, for syntax and structure see README.txt within the ZIP…
