I'm successfully using GNU Screen as serial terminal to "talk" to my Altair 8800 clone (http://altairclone.com/) using serial line. The command I use is:
screen -istrip /dev/ttyUSB0
Screen does the VT100 emulation, strips off MSB from output etc. - works perfect.
Now, I'm writing an emulator of the Altair 8800 in Java and would like to use some terminal emulator to connect and talk to it, just like it was a real machine through a serial device.
What is the best way to solve this in the Linux world? Is there a way to use
screen for that? Something tells me the solution is trivial, but I just don't know it yet.
