Dermot, I think the kind of functionality you're looking for is a 'hyperterminal for linux'. If I'm right about that you should look for a utility called 'cu', call unix. There are dial-up programs like seyon or minicom, but if it's a straight serial device, look at cu. It can be invoked on a command line with something like...
cu -l /dev/ttyS0 -s 9600
(use com1) (speed)
There are other options as well and you'll find them on the 'man' page.
Recently some of the meetings were really poorly attended because of the glitch circumstances of almost all 'regulars'. Hope next friday will justify the publication of some sort of summary on the website. Philip, are you still able to do the content ?
Remember, it's YOUR meeting. It's not a lecture or tutorial, so if something has gotten right up your arse (besides GPFs) now is the chance to say -that's if you want to give me (or any other volunteers) a chance to haul up some docs on it.
Jason, look forward to meeting you, you great smartarse! Mark, get you're juvenile ass and super project over here to us so we can have a look! One of us will get you a pint if you've got the cops' ID Card o-: Many congratulations on your project.
