modemtest(1) Tool to examining your modem through Perl's Device::SerialPort

Some systems, serial ports, and modem behave in strange ways. To test the capabilities of Perl's Device::SerialPort, this tool queries the system settings for the given DEVICE, and attempts to set up the port and send the initialization string ``ATE1'' to the modem, reporting the results seen.
