in reply to Accessing Serial port on windows and Linux

I haven't used whatever::serialport modules for long long time. You just simply type below:
open( PORT, "+>/dev/S01/" or die "Can't open S01: $!"; #linux mode open( PORT, "+>COM1" ) or die "Can't open COM1: $!"; #Windows mode
Please note you should install active perl first for the second method.

I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction

    How do you specify speed, parity and xon/off?

      By using ioctl, at least on Linux. The various serial port modules take care of that when you use them. I think Windows has something similar, RTFM. In the worst case, you get the OS defaults for the port.

      Note that /dev/S01 is usually not your first serial port. That would be named /dev/ttyS0, and the second one /dev/ttyS1. USB converters usually appear as /dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/ttyUSB1, and so on. (/dev/S01 seems to be a typo or a system-specific device.)


      Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
