- but note that your forwarder may need to forward states of handshake
lines too. This applies particularly for mice (serial mice, not that
anyone uses them any more, tended to need specific handshake lines
asserted because they powered themselves from them!) and modems, which
may refuse to go off-hook without a suitable handshake assertion, unless
explicitly configured otherwise (I forget the relevant Hayes commands to
set this option, but they are out there somewhere).
Dale: this is also worth bearing in mind if you're writing a driver; you
may need to do more than just send and receive bytes to the device.
You'll probably know the serial ioctls very well when you're done :)
