modbus_rtu_get_serial_mode - get the current serial mode
*int modbus_rtu_get_serial_mode(modbus_t *'ctx');*
The *modbus_rtu_get_serial_mode()* function shall return the serial mode
currently used by the libmodbus context:
*MODBUS_RTU_RS232*:: the serial line is set for RS232 communication. RS-232
(Recommended Standard 232) is the traditional name for a series of standards
for serial binary single-ended data and control signals connecting between a
DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) and a DCE (Data Circuit-terminating
Equipment). It is commonly used in computer serial ports
*MODBUS_RTU_RS485*:: the serial line is set for RS485 communication. EIA-485,
also known as TIA/EIA-485 or RS-485, is a standard defining the electrical
characteristics of drivers and receivers for use in balanced digital multipoint
systems. This standard is widely used for communications in industrial
automation because it can be used effectively over long distances and in
electrically noisy environments.
This function is only available on Linux kernels 2.6.28 onwards and can only be
used with a context using a RTU backend.
The function shall return `MODBUS_RTU_RS232` or `MODBUS_RTU_RS485` if
successful. Otherwise it shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values
defined below.
The current libmodbus backend is not RTU.
