minicom - send string or single ascii character

I am trying to get minicom to function like windows hyperterminal where a string is sent after I press enter. As far as I've determined, minicom sends each individual character right after a key is pressed. Does anyone know how to modify minicom to do this?

I don't know if minicom can be configured to do that, but I'm fairly sure that C-Kermit can, using the 'output' command.
