Command line NOS Teletekst reader, the Dutch public teletext system

nostt is a command line reader for NOS Teletekst, the Dutch public teletext system like Ceefax in the UK. It supports color and has an interactive mode.

Note that teletext supports 6-cell 2x3 block drawing characters. The NOS viewer and API use a custom font with these characters in the “private use” 0xF000 Unicode range. Because such characters are not usually available on terminals, they are replaced by characaters.
