Serial Communication Library

Note about Repository Changes

If you had the serial library checked previously and now those settings seem broken, it is because I recently reorganized the serial repository. I wanted these checkouts to break so that you were forced to update.

If you previously were using the master branch, that version is now under the git tag v0.1.

If you were previously using the boostless branch, that version is now tagged as v0.2 or boostless.

If you were previously using the new_api branch, that has become the new master branch and is also tagged v1.0.1.

Using within ROS workspace

Setup workspace (skip if you already have one):

source setup.bash

Add the serial unary stack to your ROS workspace:

rosws merge https://raw.github.com/wjwwood/serial/80c0/serial.rosinstall

Rerun rosinstall to fetch it:

rosinstall .
source setup.bash

Build the unary stack:

rosmake serial --rosdep-install

Run the example:

rosrun serial serial_example

Use it in your ROS pkg by adding this line to your manifest.xml:

<depend package="serial" />
