This is a cross-platform terminal emulator - targetted for PC serial
port interface with RS232 protocol. It uses basic libraries and can be
seen as a light alternative compared to other multi-purpose terminal

+library modules.
+The my1comlib module started out as a Win32-only implementation and was
+extended to enable usage on Linux systems. The module strive to provide
+a common interface for both systems - thus, becoming a simple cross-platform
+solution for small embedded projects that frequently require access to

The my1comport module provides simple serial port interface - the
configurations are done internally without any need for user settings.

This code is written for Linux platform but can be compiled with MinGW
cross-compiler for Win32 target machine.
