I have a serial device attached to my PC's usb port, and get /dev/ttyUSB0. Then I run
minicom on it, and run
strace -p <minicom pid> to monitor minicom's activity.
I found that, when I send text to /dev/ttyUSB0, every text message was appended an
\r character, i.e.
I have done the same work using
kermit and found the same result.
So my first doubt is: why these tools append the
Also, I know that in Unix ecosystem,
\n is used for new line character, why these serial tools append
\r but not
\n? This is my second doubt.
I have googled "minicom send carriage return", "minicom add carriage return", "minicom carriage return", but find no result, and it seems that the content of
minicom in internet is sometimes rare...
At last, please allow me to issue my last question: if
minicom still an active project, I find it not update from Dec, 2013 from its mainpage, but kermit project is updated more recently.
