Summary: Picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program
Picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program.
It is, in principle, very much like minicom, only it's pico
instead of mini! It was designed to serve as a simple, manual,
modem configuration, testing, and debugging tool. It has also
served (quite well) as a low-tech "terminal-window" to allow
operator intervention in PPP connection scripts (something
like the ms-windows "open terminal window before / after dialing"
feature). It could also prove useful in many other similar tasks.
It is ideal for embedded systems since its memory footprint is
minimal (less than 20K, when stripped). Apart from being a handy
little tool, picocom source distribution includes a simple, easy
to use, and thoroughly documented terminal-management library,
which could serve other projects as well. This library hides
the termios(3) calls, and provides a less complex and safer
(though certainly less feature-rich) interface. "picocom"
runs on Linux, and with minor modifications it could run on
any Unix system with the termios(3) library.
