I couldn't find any documentation or discussion of serial port arbitration in darwin or Mac OS X. The situation is the classic one: I want my program to listen on the modem port but yield it to any other program wishing to use it. The efax man page mentions the "UUCP device locking protocol", but this appears to be useful only if all other applications adhere to it. Is Open Transport's arbitration mechanism supported under Mac OS X? If so, what does it use on the darwin level? I also wouldn't want the fact that I'm listening on the device to interfere with sleep. Do I need to listen for system power notifications and close the port when the system is requesting permission to go to sleep? _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
