How to create a virtual serial port?

As others have already stated, "Virtual Serial Port" isn't descriptive
enough. There are various forms of "Virtual Serial Ports" and different
people use the term to mean different things. For example, emulating RS232
communication over Bluetooth, or USB, is also something done using "Virtual
Serial Port". I'd expect however, this to be a driver, not typically not a
user-land application.
