Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes (see man screen). It can be used as an UART/tty terminal to drive APF*.


In Debian/Ubuntu there is a package :

$ sudo apt-get install screen

Connect to serial port

To connect to serial port tty, just type :

$ screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

Where '/dev/ttyUSB0' is your serial port device.

To quit the terminal do Ctrl-a k then 'y'.


Scroll correctly

On Debian if you use the mouse wheel to scroll terminal, it will scroll the commands history. To solve this problem just add this magic formula in your ~/.screenrc :

termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@
