1.2pre7 Oct 14, 1998 Various Fixes
1.2pre6 Oct 6, 1998 cleaned up documentation. Pulled out win32 support. remove full path from JAR command.
1.2pre5 Aug 12, 1998 Added David Atkinson's support for which implements event
notification, hardware flow control (tested with a modem),
multiple bytes reads etc. Needs to be converted back to
termios calls. Claims to work with blackbox.
.cvsignore - Added to ignore generated files such as
"config.h". It just cleans up CVS reports of what's new
and different. - Add a "jcl.jar" target to make a JAR file
for JCL.
SerialImp.c - Implemented SerialInputStream_skip(). If
it runs out of memory it uses a slower algorithm which
uses almost no memory.
- Support for baud rates of 38400. - Rename get_speed to
bps2speed_t (bits-per-second to speed_t constant) to
remove ambiguity.
- The GetSpeed functions now correctly return the bps
speed rather than the speed_t constant. This means JCL
will now return the correct speed.
- Add speed_t2bps to be the reverse of bps2speed_t.
- Fix the spelling of "receive".
Added /dev/modem to the list of ports because it's very
common. Added comments from Suns NullDriver sample,
giving credit where necessary. (Sheldon Young -
Commented SerialImp.c (
1.2pre4 Aug 12, 1998 The CommAPI has changed in the newest beta from Sun,
now named "javacomm20-ea". I have attached,
which I have modified so it now compiles.
