Hi Riccardo.

To send information through the serial port, a serial external is
required. On Linux, I'm aware of two serial externals: "serialctl" by
Gunter Geiger, and "comport" by Winfried Ritsch. On Windows, I think
there's only "comport". For a previous project, I tried "serialctl" but
for some reason it didn't work for me so I had to use "comport".

But "comport" is difficult to use because it sends are receives ascii
character codes, one by one in a stream mode. I will soon release a set
of externals, called "any2ascii" and "ascii2any", to convert numbers,
symbols and lists from and to serial ascii streams. Stay tuned...
