Use 'screen' as a serial terminal emulator
Authored by: isometry on Nov 14, '06 04:00:45PM
I use the following keyspan.term (string-style plist for readability):

{
    WindowSettings = (
        {
            Columns = 80; 
            CustomTitle = KeySpan1; 
            Rows = 25; 
            SaveLines = "-1"; 
            Shell = "screen -T vt100 /dev/tty.KeySerial1 9600"; 
            ShellExitAction = 1; 
            TermCapString = "xterm-color"; 
            VisualBell = YES; 
            WindowCloseAction = 1; 
        }
    ); 
}
Note that you can control the terminal baud rate and other characteristics with the last argument (see the WINDOW TYPES section of screen(1)).
