Serial Communication Toolbox for Scilab
This toolbox enables the use of Serial Communication in Scilab (http://www.scilab.org) and in Scicoslab (http://www.scicoslab.org).
This is a port of the __Portable Serial Toolbox__ for Scilab originally written
by Enrico Segre (http://www.weizmann.ac.il/home/fesegre)
and has been ported to Scilab 5.x and released with his kind permission. It is
licensed, at his request, under the GPLv3.
Enrico does not wish to provide support for this toolbox anymore. Therefore, for
any support related queries or otherwise, please raise an issue on the Github
project page (https://github.com/sengupta/Scilab-Serial).
You can reach me at [this address](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org), but I would
prefer you raise an issue on Github for problems with the toolbox.
This toolbox is known to have worked so far on Linux based systems and on
Windows (up till Windows 7).
The implementation via TCL wrappers is certainly suboptimal, but shouldn't be
such a penalty, given the low bandwidth and the intrinsic asynchronous mode of
serial communication. And mainly, it relieves the developer from supporting many
platforms at once.
0.4.2: 13/3/2017: Toolbox ported to Scilab 6.0
0.4.1: 2/10/2012: Toolbox ported to Scilab 5.5
0.4 : 15/4/2012: Toolbox ported to Scilab 5.4
0.3 : 14/5/2011: Initial release on ATOMS by Aditya Sengupta
serial is now compatible with Scilab 5.x
0.2.x: 12/1/2009: Final Release by Enrico Segre
0.2 : corrected version after http://bugzilla.scilab.org/3829 :
readserial/writeserial were confused by strings containing
nonprintable ascii characters
Toolbox essentially still geared for scilab 4.x (4.1.2, scicoslab) in the sense
- in many points the detour ``TCL_EvalStr("set answ [....]");
TCL_GetVar("answ")`` is still implemented (was mandatory prior to
it is not required since scilab 4.1.2
