Custom Baud Rates
« on: December 05, 2014, 09:56:23 am »
I'm trying to use the SerialTools app to analyze a connection that uses a custom baud rate of 500000. Mac OS X supports custom baud rates using the ioctl(fd, IOSSIOSPEED, baud_rate) function. Does your app support this, or can it be modified to?

It can be modified to support custom baudrate.
I'll put this suggestion on the feature request list.

I would appreciate that too.

For ESP8266 (cool, small, cheap IoT device from Espressif) development I need 74880 baud, which is unfortunately not a standard baud rate. At the moment I can only use a daily build of the Arduino IDE with the build in Terminal. SerialTool is better so it would be great to have a custom baud rate.
