Re: BASH script serial input

said by dlsauers:

I have things working with dd and nuking its extraneous output off to /dev/null land...but it seems to miss data at points due to dd or seomthing else and thats an issue,

You put the dd command into a loop and keep opening and closing the serial device. It is no surprise that this causes you to loose data.
Make sure that you keep the serial device open ( Maxo See Profile showed an example of how to do a loop that keeps the serial port open).

As for the "one line it keeps over writing" there is apparently a difference in end-of-line handling between the old and new adapter. You may be able to compensate by using the stty options icrnl and -inlcr to convert carriage returns into new lines (line feed).
