It would sure be fun to play VICE supports Turbo232 emulation, but with limitations - you can attach the emulation to a file or to a device, i.e. a serial port for example. To directly run a program on the host (e.g. a shell or login prompt) you have to use an intermediate program that sets up a unix terminal for the shell, using the VICE RS232 i/o streams as input/output. This program I just did not yet have the time to write. On the other hand I tested my 6502 operating system on VICE by using ttyS0 (COM1) as VICE RS232 device and ttyS1 (COM2) as "dialin" shell port and an null-modem-cable between those two serial ports :-) > Correction, please.
