Re: More cool stuff with Ersatz-11

Jim,  I'll take a look at it and see what I can do.  I have Linux at home,
so I could develop the code and test it at home.  It probably would be a lot
easier to do on Linux than on Windows.  I could probably start with the
Linux telnet daemon and make it do IPCs to the simulator.  I'm assuming the
KL-11 is a fairly simple device to emulate, but I'll check my old PDP-11
peripherals handbook.
