The following table is a summary of the channels which are known to the BIOS. One should note that further channels can be installed via Bconmap.
|2||CON||Console (with VT-52-sequences)|
|4||IKBD||Intelligent Keyboard processor|
|5||RAWCON||Console (without control characters)|
|6||——||ST-compatible serial (Modem-1)|
|7||——||SCC Channel-B (Modem-2)|
|9||——||SCC Channel-A (Serial-2)|
Note: Output via Channel-5 (RAWCON) can be appreciably faster than via Channel-2 (CON), as the control sequences do not have to be evaluated. A further advantage arising from this is a greater supply of characters.
