Currently at work I’m programming a pair of modems to talk 9600 baud over a Tx line in order to off-load weather data to a web server in 15 minute intervals. (long distance)
I’m programming the modems in raw Hayes Set with minicom.
So guess what the best program for scripting the connection and data collection?
Trusty, rusty kermit.
Of course the solution includes perl,php, and mysql but who knew I’d be using kermit in 2004.
