Grabserial - python-based serial dump and timing program - good for embedded Linux development

See http://elinux.org/Grabserial for documentation and examples.

For help with command line options, use: grabserial -h

Installation

If you have the python 'serial' module, you can just place grabserial in a directory on your path, or add the directory containing grabserial to your path, or just invoke grabserial directly.

This should work:

$ sudo cp grabserial /usr/local/bin
$ grabserial

You can also install this as a python module with: 'python setup.py install' (Some users have reported problems with this - let me know if it doesn't work for you.)

Examples

$ `grabserial -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -e 30 -t -m "^Linux version.*"`

Grab serial input for 30 seconds (-e 30), displaying the time for each line (-t), and re-setting the base time when the line starting with "Linux version" is seen.

$ `grabserial -d COM42 -T -b 115200 -e 3600 -Q -o "%" -a`

Log serial data from COM4, with system timestamp (-T) with settings 115200:8N1:xonxoff=0:rtscts=0 (-b 115200) to the output file "2017-06-13T22:45:08" (-o "%"), for 1 hour (-e 3600) and then restart (-a) to create new log.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
