Does anyone know how to send a file over a serial port on Linux? I cannot for the life of me figure out how to send an Intel Hex file to Small Computer Monitor on my RC2014.
Copying-and-pasting into picocom or screen doesn't work (stops sending after like 1/4 the data), configuring the port and using
cat file > /dev/ttyUSB0 doesn't work (breaks the serial connection and requires restarting the RC2014, and yes I triple-checked the baud and parameters and everything), and picocom's “Send File” feature only works over x/zmodem or similar. Trying picocom noninteractively like
picocom [args & stuff] < file also doesn't work.
This is getting really irritating at this point.
@djsundog @nytpu If it's helpful, the end effect of my protocol is to send a file at about 100 bytes per second, at 8 bytes at a time using explicit handshakes. If you could somehow convince PicoTerm to send data at 100 bytes per second, then that might be slow enough for SCM to handle the data being sent to it even without relying on flow control.
@vertigo @djsundog At this point I'm just giving up and waiting for my EEPROMs and burner to arrive. I was hoping that SCM would make it easier to test and debug but I guess not since I can't even get the program into it in the first place. For rapid testing I guess I'll try to rig up this RC2024 emulator: https://github.com/EtchedPixels/RC2014
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
