Do you mean "programming" as in at the low level, making it do strange
things that are not done when it is used as a simple serial device?

Or do you mean "programming" as in making it send and receive serial

If the latter, it's just a serial port like COM4 or something and any
serial library would do the job.

If the former, perhaps you can expand on just what "programming" means
to you in this case.
