I chnaged the clocal flag .. I can't remember which way cause I can't
check to confirm and now I can't even look at the settings.
I did this without anything connected to the serial port.
How can I reset this without rebooting ?
Setting device driver flags is not a normal method of changing 'struct
termios' flags. Most programs which use a serial device will rest them
themselves. In summary, the 'stty' command is transient will be wiped out
when another program starts.
Get my 'serial_suite.tgz' file from 'scicom.alphacdc.com' via ftp. Log in
as 'anonymous' then use your full e-mail address as a password. It
contains several serial port utilities and a blurb about the meaning of all
the 'struct termios' flags.

Unix is what MSDOS will be when it grows up.
I have been rather confused after reading the documentation and the FAQ
(March 1993) for Linux. Some places the first serial port is referred to as
/dev/ttys0 and some places it is referred to as /dev/ttyS0. Are these just
typos and if so which one is correct???. In my /dev directory I have ttys0,
ttys1 etc. Did the device names change between releases?? I have the .99p4
release ( I know the current release is patchlevel 8, but I cannot afford the
time to reinstall Linux every three weeks when a new patchlevel is introduced!
