Hmmmm, yes there should be. However, as I said I don't think it's in the
current termcap. Probably need to search for old termcaps, and I don't
know where you'll find them, I can't even give you a timeframe. I'm pretty
sure the original ones didn't have an entry, they're the only ones I've
ever bothered to look at. Might ask on comp.sys.cbm

We'll you might be able to find someone that would build one, but why
bother. Just take one of the 1541 cables, cut in half, and solder on a
parallel plug. If you can get a plug that the cable will plug into you can
make an adapter that will let you build this without destroying a cable. I
did a little looking, and here is what I was able to come up with.
