About

Nterm is a vt100 terminal emulator for emacs. Eventually I would like it to replace xterm for my daily use.

Nterm is written in Emacs Lisp a great language worth learning.

FAQ

Can I use Unicode?

A: Nope, it's vt100 character set, 8 bit character are just ignored for now

Why write a new emulator when we already have term?

I think nterm is easier to maintain than term. One look at term's term-emulate-terminal function should convince anyone that term cannot be maintained anymore. Compare with nterm equivalent function nterm-emulate it is only 25 lines long.
