NAME
dcl - HP 98628A serial communications link
SYNOPSIS
dcl0 at scode? flags 0x1
DESCRIPTION
The 98628A is a buffered EIA RS-232C (CCITT V.28) communications inter- face. It has one port with full modem control. Input and output for each line may set to one of following baud rates; 0, 50, 75, 110, 134.5, 150, 200, 300, 600, 1200, 1800, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200. An optional argument flags may be set to 1 if the line should be treated as hard-wired with carrier always present, or to 0 if modem control is desired. Use HP cable "98626 & 98628 opts.002, RS232-C DCE CABLE, 5061-4216" to attach non-modem devices. Use HP cable "98626 & 98628 opts.001, RS232-C DTE CABLE, 5061-4215" to attach modems. The 98628A has a 256 byte input silo and a 256 output silo. Input inter- rupts happen on a per character basis. The high water and low water marks in the kernel tty routines are com- pletely inappropriate for a device like this with a large input buffer. Don't use tandem mode if possible. A fast system can handle input at 19.2K baud without receive overflow. For output to devices that make heavy use of XON/XOFF a write size of less then 256 will improve performance marginally.
