Question parse info from ttyS1


OK, here's what I want to do. Open ttyS1 for input get a full line of text terminated with a newline. Parse the line and write the info to an .html document then post that page.

I need to be able to open /dev/ttyS1 (it requires root access at this time)
get a FRESH line of text and parse it ( I think I have the parsing down ) copying the parsed data to a file should not be a problem, just getting it in the first place.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks,

well i'm not sure how a line of data can be fresh, but if you want to learn about serial programming in UNIX check out:

http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/Serial-Programming-HOWTO/

and

http://www.easysw.com/~mike/serial/

that should help you to get the data.
