That's correct, there was a text processor cartridge for the CBM-II
series that contained the code access CBM serial devices via that
adaptor on the cassette port. And I think it was Ullrich von Bassewitz
who made a new kernal for the CBM-II that has that serial support
already built in. His homepage should be easy to find, it also has the
cc65 compiler.
