Hi Gene,

I'm not sure about the Coco version, but the OS9/68K version of Ved works 
fine over a terminal provided you set the TERM environment to whatever 
terminal you're using.

How about emacs?

Perhaps we need to be looking at some of the freeware source to see if it is 
adaptable to using via a terminal.

Regards, Bob Devries
