Terminal Emulator

There appear to have been at least two programs called Terminal Emulator for the Sinclair QL.

One by QCODE and another by Micrologic Consultants.

QCODE's Terminal Emulator

This version is probably one of the most well known terminal emaulators for the Sinclair QL in the early days, supporting file transfer and VT52 emulation.

The program is Preset compatible, which meant that QL users could access one of the largest UK bulletin boards (including Micronet 800). The software stores your logon identity number and supports various Prestel facilities, such as 'reveal' which displayed information hidden on special pages.

The program also includes a built in screen editor which can be used to edit or prpare text.

It was provided with the Miracle Modem and the QL Modaptor.
