minicom equivalent with lines dated

I would like to find some software allowing me to display serial data and the date of each new line reveived (miliseconds accuracy). FoxTerm under windows do the job pretty well... bur I don't find linux equivalent!
I search in minicom manual, but without success.
I am pretty sure that it should be possible to do that with a good script, a combination of "cat" or "hexdump", and "date"...

Thank you for your feedbak / advises !

Is this simply for logging things such as one-line machine status messages? Or, does it have to be a full-on interactive terminal application like minicom?
If the former, it should be easy to write something easily enough in almost any programming language. If it was me, I'd start with Perl. It wouldn't surprise me if someone posted a pretty good starter right here. Stay tuned...

sys64738, I will try, but I am looking for something more simple than recompiling minicom...

theNbomr, my need is to simply log things such as one-line machine status messages... I could write something in C, but I feel that it should be a way to do it with just a few bash lines.... Unfortunately I have not yet found it...

-I know that there is some script called "Serialchrono" and doing the job, written by Gregory Clement, but I did not find the source... Typical output should be something like :

[ 2.148271] Verifying Checksum ... OK
[ 2.268042] Loading Kernel Image ... OK
[ 2.275552] OK
[ 2.282747]
[ 2.289796] Starting kernel ...

- I have either found a soft called "grabserial" but it seems to be located only on elinux website, and the website is down for now...
