NAME ^

Test::Device::SerialPort - Serial port mock object to be used for testing

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Test::Device::SerialPort;
    my $PortObj = Test::Device::SerialPort->new('/dev/ttyS0');

    $PortObj->baudrate(19200);
    $PortObj->parity('none');
    $PortObj->databits(8);
    $PortObj->stopbits(1);

    # Simulate read from port (can also read nothing)
    my($count, $data) = $PortObj->read(100);

    print "Read random data from serial [$data]\n";

    # Simulate write to serial port
    $count = $PortObj->write("MY_MESSAGE\r");

    print "Written $count chars to test port\n";

    # ...

DESCRIPTION ^

Nothing more. It's a test object that mimics the real Device::SerialPort thing. Used mainly for testing when I don't have an actual device to test.

STATUS ^

Started as a really sketchy and cheap way to mock serial port objects in unit tests.

Thanks to the work Bill Birthisel has put into this distribution, Test::Device::SerialPort should now mimick a serial port fairly accurately.

SEE ALSO ^

Device::SerialPort
Win32::SerialPort

KNOWN LIMITATIONS ^

The configuration file methods save and start have minimal support. Settings are not saved or restored although a two_line config file is created. restart is not supported yet. Nor are lockfiles nor "quiet mode". Tied filehandle methods are not supported yet either.
