I have a need to read in lines of text from a serial port onto a PC, and timestamp them.
I just need one timestamp per line, preferably for the leading character but I could collect data OK by getting the timestamp of the linefeed.
I'm hoping that someone has already written some sort of a simple protocol analyzer that does this.
Open source is a plus. Something that's already available for installation in Ubunto is a double-plus. I could make things work with Windows (ick).
I'm reading in numbers from an instrument which does not always sample at a consistent speed. Ideally what I would end up with would be a text file that goes
cr lf cr lf
(The end goal is to record this text file, read it into Scilab and analyze the bejeezus out of it).
