Having access to a single serial port would in most cases be
adequate I suppose. It would be nice (and in some cases necessary) to
access all of the available serial ports. This is allowed under
Windows. I have seen suggestions that it is possible via Apple Script
but this seems something of a workaround. Does anyone know if full
access to all available serial ports is planned in the future for the
Mac and Linux? I know that no development environment has everything
but this seems like a rather basic omission.
