Hi, all.
Is anybody know how to check modem status from the Python on Linux?
I need something like send 'ATZ' and get "OK" or something.

I've tried do somethig like:

modem = open('/dev/ttyS0', 'r+')
modem.write('ATZ\r') # Hang here forewer

This is bad. Then I've tried use several modules for serial port, wheere I can 
write, but if I read, always get ''.

Perhaps I should figure out with DTR status and so on.... Any ideas?

Regards, Bogdan
