Bray! I was wondering if you were still around. Out of curiosity, what is new in the latest version? By the way, I've been loyally using your tool for something like 2-3 years now.

Hello

What's new? Hmmm...depends on what is your last version. There were some major changes on com port scanning and selecting (up to com32) and small bug fixes. If you can tell me version date i can tell you some more details.

Bray,

I just made a $50 donation to you since I mention your program in my book and I've used it a lot in my own development work. I'm making this public in the hopes that others who use your terminal will be motivated to also donate to you for your excellent work.

I have been using 20040714. I just noticed that when running the latest from your website it seems to access the Internet. Why is this? (checking for updates perhaps?)

Huh...I am really glad to hear that something i'm doing since 1997 is useful for someone else. Yes, it's more than 10 years now. ;)

  22.12.2004 - scripting - Graph_Rx
  01.01.2005 - RxMemo savetofile...
  03.01.2005 - add CR/CR+LF, show & hide buttons and com settings
  08.01.2005 - send file delay
  09.03.2005 - better delay function in scripting
  10.03.2005 - wider range for macro delay 0000-9999ms (%DLYxxxx)
  12.06.2005 - invert option for RTS (RS485)

  09.10.2005 - open file
  27.12.2005 - macro naming
  20.01.2006 - COM10 bugfix

  12.07.2007 - com20 bugfix
  10.08.2007 - comxx fix

About net access...
You probably get a warning from your firewall, right?
This is because terminal is trying to "listen" on port 23 (telnet port). This is a feature that was added in v20040728 for TCP/IP remote control. It works but it's still some kind of experimental thing.
Let me explain how this works and maybe be useful.
For example...if you have two PCs on your local network and only one have COM port you can connect your com device to this PC and run terminal on it and then remotely connect to this PC from another. All you have to do is to open command prompt and telnet to PC with COM port (telnet 192.168.x.x). Now you can communicate with terminal via ethernet. All you type is transfered into Tx window and all from Rx window will be displayed.
I hope this will help.

Hi Bray - thanks for clearing that up. Sounds like a neat feature.

One thing I've never understood was what was appended to the end of messages being sent. So right now if all check boxes are unchecked, if you hit enter when entering text, it just sends the text without anything at the end (no CR or anything like that), right? Then if you check "+CR" it will add on a CR to the end of the string in the text entry box. And if you check CR=CR+LF then it'll add both a CR and an LF? Or am I completely off?

Also, have you ever thought about giving your terminal tabs so that you can monitor multiple com ports at once? I often will have two or three instances of your terminal open (in fact, I have two open right now) so that I can listen to a couple different devices at the same time. Right now I just alt-tab between them, but tabs would be cool :)

Anyways, thanks again for making such a useful tool available for free to the community!

Yes...it should be something like that. :)
If you are not sure you can connect pin 2 and pin 3 on com connector to get loop back and turn on hex mode in Rx and you'll see exact echo.

Yes...i'm thinking about that...maybe in version 2.0. ;)

Is there a definition of the functions available when scripting?

e.g a PAUSE command would be nice, but I don't know if there is one or not....

Hi Bray,

I am using your terminal-program (as you know ;) ), and noticed the following:

I have a virtual com-port, number 9, built with a FT232R. This USB-chip is not bus-powered, but target-powered. When I have an open com-link to it, and turn the target system off, the terminal-program gets stuck.
I realise that it is not very decent ;) to do so, but wanted to let you know it happens. I tried to put this report on http://braypp.googlepages.com/terminal, but I can't find where to put the report.

Cheers

Nard

PS Tested with an old version from 2004, the latest one on your site, and the version before that with "only" 10 macro's. Hyperterminal survives my abusive turn-off while com-link open action.

Ok....no answers. ;) I suppose there is no good free serial terminals for WMPPC's out there. I have plans to make some kind of light version of Terminal.
Any candidats? ;)

I found a problem receiving characters with framing errors (wrong parity)
I admit, it has been a 2004'er version :oops:

I wrote a MODBus driver which ignores characters with wrong parity. (8,E,1 ist the desired configuration)
One sender launches a message of 5 characters, but I only received 2 characters.
BrayTerm as a spy in this connection showed me all 5 characters correctly.
Unsing BrayTerm instead of the real sender, I could receive all 5 characters.
Using a digital scope I realized, that the sender always uses a "1"Bit for Parity.

How deals BrayTerm (newer versions) with received Framing Errors.
- ignoring characters completely
- displaying without any error-hint
- displaying chracter but showing framing error (e.g. different colour on display) ?

You can also use cool serial freeware soft. with crc and combined data with hex,string..

much more usefull if you develop a seral protocol like rs485 etc.

AVR, M16C, MCS51, C, Pascal, Delphi, C#,

@ Bray, I've been using your terminal program after reading about it here several years ago. It is great, I like the custom baud rate for when I'm running f's that are not conducive to typical baud rates.

Thank you. FYI running v1.9b

hello,
i would like to insert an auto timer macro in my bray's terminal 1.9.
i want this macro switches with DTR and RTS each 5 or 10 minutes for example. It could be very usefull for me and my work.

i would like you help me because i get some problems with the syntax and the language used.

I doubt if you can use the macro's for setting and clearing the control-lines.
< ..... timeline .... >
I did some search in the Help, and it seems that the (experimental) scripting can be used for what you want to do. Haven't used it yet. Let's see if somebody pops in who has used it.

Yeah, I was going to mention that if you guys want any real attention you should start a new thread because only folks interested in acquiring Bray's terminal are going to look at this.

Is there a way to see hex and ascii at the same time? I find the column on the right to be useless. A layout similar to the ascii window would be good, especially if it is easy to see the corresponding character for the hex byte.

Is this a signature?
