Hello everybody,
Previously there has been some discussions about OSX serial port 
communication with Pure Data in the list. I found [serial] external 
object for OSX and seems like there is no help file related to this 
[serial] has only one inlet, there is no any outlets. When I type 
[serial 2] , it gives invalid command name "com2_open" in the terminal 
window. I am trying to make Keyspan-bstamp work with OSX-PD, so [serial 
1] does not give any alert, but I am not sure if this means any 
success. On the Other hand, related to the terminal window, following 
commends can be used as mode in side [serial] object, -blocking, 
-buffering, -buffersize, -encoding, -eofchar and -translation. But I 
don't know what these modes are doing?

I am using g3 powerbook OSX -pd 0.37.4  and pd0.38TEST10

anybody has any experience with OSX PD, keyspan -basicstamp or with 
this [serial] external object?
