transferring \n to linux from perl via serial port

  • 11 years ago

    Hi,

    I am trying to control an OMAP with Linux, from a Windows laptop running Perl via serial port. I could open serial port (COM1) and send commands, but not able to execute them by sending the enter key. I tried \n but it only moving the cursor to the next line, and not imitating enter key. Code is below. Any suggestions? Please help!!

    ---------

    open( PORT, "+>COM1") or die "Cant open COM1 - $!";

    $msg="ls\n";

    print PORT $msg;

    ---------

    The output comes as
    .#ls
    |

    but doesnt execute..

    Thanks!
