Under Unix, serial I/O is generally done using the modules that
wrap the standard Posix termios interface. If you know how to
do what you want in C, then just take a look at the TERMIOS,
termios, and os or posix modules. Note that you need to use
the termios stuff with file descriptors as returned by
os.open(), and not with Python file objects as returned by the
Under Win32, there's a serial-IO module that impliments
serial-port objects in a completely different manner.
I don't know about MacOS, VMS, etc.
