Testing input from a local tty device

A simple test of capturing output from a local tty device on a Unix host.


Use the 'cat' command to capture output from a dumb terminal attached to a serial port.
Redirect the tty device output to the cat command, example:
# cat < /dev/ttyS1

Type in data on the terminal attached to the serial port and end with [ENTER]
The data will be displayed on the screen.
