feature suggestion for serial tools
« on: September 21, 2021, 01:15:22 pm »
Hello there, you guys helped me get my partially busted antique 68HC711e9 going again! - serial tools gave me a straightforward interface to the 'Buffalo monitor' program in the chip - it allowed me to inspect EEPROM addresses, modify config registers, dynamically swap baud rates and write individual EEPROM bytes - (for some reason they had changed in a recent blackout).  I had to hand copy byte by byte from the original .s19 and it was like a diagonal had been cut through the EEPROM memory locations in terms of flipped bits.  Anyway stoked it is all right now, appreciate this utility!

So the suggestion would be for a feature to load and transmit a file to the connected device. I realise this would probably be a significant amount of effort to do, but thought i'd chime my thoughts.

PS: shout out if you get a donation channel happening, i owe you a fiver:). D

Hi dumpington,
thanks for the feedback.
you are not the first user to come up with this suggestion.
It is already on the feature request list and will be implemented eventually.

Unfortunately time is limited, but I will get to it eventually.
