NAME  edit

tserialport - tcl package for library libserialport

SYNOPSIS  edit

tserialport::getports ?open?
tserialport::rcsid

DESCRIPTION  edit

libserialport is a minimal, cross-platform shared library written in C that is intended to take care of the OS-specific details when writing software that uses serial ports.

Note: While libserialport is hosted on sigrok.org (and sigrok uses libserialport), this is a completely independent library that can be used by other projects as well.

The libserialport library does not depend on any sigrok related libraries or projects.

EXAMPLES  edit

tserialport::getports ?open?

Command open will try to open the port in read mode and get the default settings.

Returns a list of all serial ports at your system including the device name and usb or bluetooth information as a dict.
package require tserialport

set mydict [tserialport::getports open]

Result example Mac OS X:
0 {device /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port description Bluetooth-Incoming-Port open true
transport native baudrate 9600 bits 8 parity invalid stopbits 1 cts ignore dsr ignore dtr on
rts on xon_xoff disabled} 1 {device /dev/cu.usbserial-FT0882PI description UC232R manufacturer
FTDI product UC232R serial FT0882PI vendor_id 0x403 product_id 0x6001 open true transport
usb baudrate 9600 bits 8 parity invalid stopbits 1 cts {flow control} dsr ignore dtr on
rts {flow control} xon_xoff disabled}

Result example Windows:

baudrate 1200 bits 7 parity none stopbits 1 cts ignore dsr ignore dtr on rts on xon_xoff disabled}
1 {device COM11 description {USB Serial Port (COM11)} manufacturer FTDI product TTL232RG-VSW5V0
