It's on my list but it doesn't have a high priority because it's rather special interest stuff.

@ airsoftsoftware

By the look at the number of views this post has had it seems that there is a lot of interest in a Serial Port support.

If I had an easy way to control the serial port through Hollywood on the Amiga, it would open a lot of possibilities.

Just giving my 2 cents worth.

Cheers
Leo

@Leo:
Adding serial support for the Amiga only is not much work and could be added quite easily. I was referring to the advanced stuff that plouf was talking about...

i dont how "advanced " is what i am talking about
basic serial for ALL OSes i am asking

for amiga/windows is just adding the serial (com for windows users)
aka send bytes/receive bytes at serial

ONLY difference is that under android AFAIK (maybe i am wrong) an additional driver for usb<>rs232 should be included since there is no "Serial" in OS
(if os has some kind of serial, where i miss, like for example CDC, its again OK)

in general i just want to send/receive bytes with rs232 under ALL OSes

The problem is that I don't know how difficult it is to implement it. On Amiga it's dead easy via serial.device. But on systems like macOS it might be somewhat complicated to implement this... just guessing, though.

As I said, no idea. Maybe it's very easy on other systems as well, maybe it isn't. I'd have to do some research first, but it's on the list.

Code: Select all

- New: Added serial port support; Hollywood now comes with a dedicated library for communication on
  the serial port; the following functions are available: OpenSerialPort(), CloseSerialPort(),
  ReadSerialData(), WriteSerialData(), FlushSerialPort(), SetBaudRate(), SetStopBits(), SetParity(),
  SetDataBits(), SetFlowControl(), SetDTR(), SetRTS(), GetBaudRate(), GetStopBits(), GetDataBits(),
  GetParity(), GetFlowControl(), GetDTR(), GetRTS(), PollSerialQueue(), ClearSerialQueue(); this
  library should make it very easy and convenient to communicate with other devices using the RS/232
  standard
