For a similar situation, I've used my Mac 512 with "Red Ryder 9.4". It has VT-52 and VT-100 emulation, I believe. The nice thing is, it fits on a single 400K disk with System 3.2, Finder 5.3, the menu-bar clock, MockWrite,
DiskInfo and File Tools!  Amazing how much they could pack in so little
space...!   :-)

Well, people at the time weren't too sure about that! I quote from the Macintosh Bible, first edition, 1987:

". . . if program 'leanness' is important to you, Red Ryder – approaching 200K in size – will probably give you apoplexy."

200K - bloatware by 1987 standards.
