ttylog(8) serial device logger


ttylog [-b|--baud] [-d|--device] [-f|--flush] [-t|--timeout] > /path/to/logfile

If you are not using the timeout option, you can stop it running by pressing a ctrl-c when it's going to the screen or doing "kill -HUP nnnn" (where nnnn is the process ID for ttylog) if running in the background.


This program writes everything that comes from a serial device like /dev/ttyS1 onto stdout. You can specify the device and the baud rate of the device.


ttylog follows the GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes('-'). A summary of the options is included below:
-h, --help
