Question Serial Port (RS-232) programming on a Linux Machine


I'm about to start writing some software that must interact with serial ports on a Linux machine. Can you recommend books, tutorials, man pages, etc. to help me get started? I'm fine with C/C++ but I've never programmed for serial communication.

Seconded. It was my bible when I was writing an application to receive alarm messages through a modem.
