Question How to automate minicom using script ?


Hi... I want to write a script so that i can run minicom and automate it so that i can store the SMS what i receive into a file. My problem is how to send the AT commands to minicom by invoking it in a script? How will i get the response produced by minicom so that i can use the response string from minicom for processing in that script?
