Experience with ruby on serialport


#1

Hi,

i want to use http://rubyforge.org/projects/ruby-serialport/ to
communicate
with /dev/ttyS0 (com1). Has anyone experience with this library or
perhaps
an example code?

Cheers,
Stefan

I actually used EventMachine and the Ruby-Serialport project you
reference to do it:

http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/eventmachine-talk/2008-January/001567.html

The code snippet in that link only works with Eventmachine 0.10.x. I
think the core changed in later versions. Using that code snippet, you
can do event-driven programming on a serial port the way one would
program a network client in EventMachine.
