Abstract: TREK.BAS -- Startrek Game for the VT52/VT100/VT200
terminals is an update of:
. DECUS No. 11-421, "Seven BASIC Games",
. DECUS No. 11-633, "TREK: A Space Game for RSTS/E"
. DECUS No. 11-174, "STAR-TREK (SPACWR)"
TREK is a variant of SPCWAR (or STRTRK) which uses the
cursor features of the VT52, VT100 and VT200 terminals to
defend the Federation from the Klingon invaders. The present
update has been deliberately designed and tested to span a number of
operating systems and terminal configurations as indicated. Direct
support for VT100/VT200 terminals (rather than shifting to their
VT52 capabilities) and run-time support for either one-character or
two-character Control Sequence Introducer (CSI) have been implemented.
In addition, the program supports programmable time delay after
screen blanking, useful when communicating via a microcomputer
emulating a terminal. Also included is DEREM.FOR, a program
for reducing the size of RT-11 BASIC programs by deleting remarks.
Notes: Provides support for either one- or two-character Control
(CSI) as required by your particular terminal. For the VAX version,
DECUS No. VAX-282.
Changes and Improvements: Compatible with wider range of terminals and
Restrictions: Current implementation supports either a VT52, VT100, or
VT200 series terminal
or a microcomputer emulating a terminal.
