Martin Lund had provided tio, a simple TTY terminal I/O applications.
“tio” is a simple TTY terminal application which features a straightforward command line interface to easily connect to TTY devices for basic input/output.
The command line interface features the following options:
$ tio --help
Usage: tio [<options>] <tty device>
-b, --baudrate <bps> Baud rate (default: 115200)
-d, --databits 5|6|7|8 Data bits (default: 8)
-f, --flow hard|soft|none Flow control (default: none)
-s, --stopbits 1|2 Stop bits (default: 1)
-p, --parity odd|even|none Parity (default: none)
-o, --output-delay <ms> Output delay (default: 0)
-n, --no-autoconnect Disable automatic connect
-l, --log <filename> Log to file
-m, --map <flags> Map special characters
-v, --version Display version
-h, --help Display help
In session, press ctrl-t + q to quit.
The only option which requires a bit of elaboration is perhaps the –no-autoconnect option.
By default tio automatically connects to the provided device if present. If the device is not present it will wait for it to appear and then connect. If the connection is lost (eg. device disconnects) it will wait for the device to reappear and then reconnect.
However, if the –no-autoconnect option is provided tio will exit if the device is not present or exit if an established connection is lost.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
