Is it possible to add serial port at Hollywood for next release?

This is better implemented as a plugin because it's really only useful for Amiga users. It wouldn't be much work because it's mainly a thin wrapper around serial.device. Maybe I'll do something in case I get bored but it's no high priority :)

That's rather unlikely... get the SDK and do it yourself :)

Old post but RS232 is NOT only usefull for amiga users...
many devices and most development hardware user RS232 today and possible forever

when they use USB its a usb<>rs232 converter therefore again serial...
imho it would be very usefull in android to suport some converters like FTDI who is the most common used

this will give hardware device developers an easy way to impement the software (with hollywood)

@plouf: Ok, I'll see what I can do. Shouldn't be too complicated anyway. Do you have a specific device in mind that you'd like to address with Hollywood?

in general, to speak for my need's , i use some development tools (hardware) and/or devices , like POS, DVR, AlarmPanel's and many more that they have serial.

as we know, there is no serial in android or new PC's (at least easy) but we use usb<>rs232 adaptors
most widely used chips for these devices are FTDI's , prolific, CH340, CP2102, CDC

i believe any single of this chip's will give something..
PL2303 has drivers/API for everything AFAIK (win/mac/android/Amiga)
with FTDI's bee

since supporting a single of these will give a "choice" ( a single choice is enough, everything is good too ;))

offcourse specific "chip" has a meaning for android only
under AmigaOs/Windwos/lin/mac support for "serial" (COM?) is the correct way since there is always the serial (COM) there..
