    Reminds me of picocom, which is my daily driver.

    All of the line feed options and IO mappings may seem a bit over the top, but used them on occasion, and having it built into the tool has been much simpler than trying to mess with line endings via pipes.

      I wish this had existed 10 years ago!

      I haven’t used a real RS-232 for a while, but a surprising number of things use the Bluetooth serial profile and having a TTY I/O program that you can point at /dev/wherever/bluetooth/SPP/things/go is really useful for debugging. Quite a few of these things even talk text-based protocols, which makes this kind of thing even more useful. Last time I needed this, I used minicom and really missed the serial terminal stuff I used back in the DOS days.

        If you use a serial terminal a lot for work/play, I highly recommend giving this one a try. Unlike the alternatives, it was written recently, so it doesn’t have much legacy baggage. It just “feels right”.

          Been using this for a few years now at work (firmware) and highly recommend it.

            a no-nonsense terminal is a handy thing indeed. http://nanocom.sourceforge.net/ has been my go-to for a long time. nice to have another option though.
