>> I would like to emulate a TTY, using a daisywheel typewriter.
>> One immediately think : " Find an IBM Selectric, a Friden flexowriter or
a like "
>> But NO, I want something less complex, mechanical wise.
>> That's why I want to investigate on daisywheel typewriters.
>> I am aware of IBM Actionwriter and Triumph/Adler/Royal Gabriele 9009 that
can be used
>> as a printer with a dedicated interface BUT that is one way only :
Printer only !
>> From my investigation, **** so far ***, KEYBOARD does not send ( upload ?
) any signals.
>> ( or a special command code is required ?? )
>> Any suggestion for "others" daisywhell typewriters that could do
>> OR someone already went this way ?
>> OR any documentation ( even user's manual ) on the dedicated interface :
>> ( IF 600 Computer Interface for Triumph/Adler/Royal Gabriele 9009 )
>> ( ???name??? for IBM Actionwriter )
I immediately thought - any reason a Diablo 1650 wouldn't do?
