tio - a simple TTY terminal I/O application
tio is a simple TTY terminal application which features a straightforward commandline interface to easily connect to TTY devices for basic input/output.
It was created because the author needed a simple no-nonsense TTY terminal application to easily connect to various terminal TTY devices.
The commandline interface is straightforward as reflected in the output from 'tio --help':
Usage: tio [<options>] <tty-device> Options: -b, --baudrate <bps> Baud rate (default: 115200) -d, --databits 5|6|7|8 Data bits (default: 8) -f, --flow hard|soft|none Flow control (default: none) -s, --stopbits 1|2 Stop bits (default: 1) -p, --parity odd|even|none Parity (default: none) -o, --output-delay <ms> Output delay (default: 0) -n, --no-autoconnect Disable automatic connect -e, --local-echo Do local echo -l, --log <filename> Log to file -m, --map <flags> Map special characters -v, --version Display version -h, --help Display help See the man page for list of supported mapping flags.

By default tio automatically connects to the provided device if present. If
the device is not present, it will wait for it to appear and then connect. If
the connection is lost (eg. device is unplugged), it will wait for the device
to reappear and then reconnect. However, if the
--no-autoconnect option is
provided, tio will exit if the device is not present or an established
connection is lost.
Tio features full bash autocompletion support.
