Re: serial ports not visible with 1.7 under Vista
thank you for the answer.
You mean that this is a bug into 1.7?
Below the errno checking test case ;-)
int main (int argc, char* argv)
struct termios params;
tty = open ("/dev/ttyS5", O_RDWR | O_NOCTTY | O_NONBLOCK);
if (tty < 0)
printf ("Unable to open /dev/ttyS5: %s\n", strerror(errno));
