1 What is it? 2 =========== 3 4 This is a simple FTDI serial comms program. 5 It depends on libftdi. 6 7 The reason I wrote this is because minicom gets on my nerves and I 8 don't want to have screen(1) installed just so that I can use a serial 9 port. 10 11 If you have a common FTDI USB adapter you probably don't have to use 12 any flags when starting the program. 13 14 You need to be root to run this program. You can possibly get by just 15 by adding yourself to the relevant group. 16 17 How to use it? 18 ============== 19 20 I run rs inside tmux so you can take advantage of tmux for various 21 operations that other serial terminals implement internally. 22 23 To record all output from the attached system you can use tee(1) or 24 even tmux itself. 25 26 For example something like `sudo rs | tee -a output.log' should work. 27 28 NOTE: If you have brltty running on your system, disable or remove it 29 as for some reason it causes problems with rs.
