In a recent mail exchange with Hans we agreed on the need to provide
some functionalities to make Liberty Eiffel more interesting.
One of the features he longed for is a serial interface library. Some of
you may think that "serial communication" is a thing of the past while
those who work in industrial automation knows that it is a basic
functionality to physically interface with PLCs and the like.
Knowing his need for serial communication hurted me because some years
ago I was almost going to build such a library for a small project of
mine at work. I ended up using Python.... 🙁
Now it's the time I fix this.
The question is how to approach this issue.
Shall I wrap an existing library? In that case which one?
Shall I port some other library or "take inspiration" from existing code?
I've been using almost exclusively Linux since 1998 with minimal
exposure to Windows so I gladly welcome any suggestion from developers
who mainly use Win.
