If anyone is interested, I put this together a while back and it's rather nice to have a bit of colour and Print@ to console displays. It's at it's most useful when loaded as a "fit & forget" library when it can, of course, run on a "headless" Micromite chip.

'These are MMBasic library routines for TeraTerm VT100 terminal video.
'Comments are NOT recoverable from the Micromite as they are stripped out on
'inclusion into the library. It is worth keeping a copy of this file. :)
