Serial port monitor program

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a good GUI BASED Serial Port Monitor / Protocol Analyser software but FOR LINUX.

For some reason, all suitable packets I have found so far are for Windows only (HHD Serial Port Monitor for example). What I want is something which I can sniff serial ports with, and display the data in graphical mode. So far, I've found sniffers working in terminal mode only, not really good and displaying data in a not really handy format.

Any idea?

Cheers in advance...

Oddly enough ... I do not think there is one.

I deal with serial interfaces at work ... and I have not found an equivalent serial debugger such as HDD or Portmon.

Yes... Really strange, alright...

If I was a programmer I would sit and make it my own.

Thanx anyway...
