Escape Characters

Post by alanwms »

[Disclaimer - I don't think this has anything to do with Flowcode issues].

Wondering if you can give me some input.

Sending serial data to a terminal program called "Termite". everything is working good with the exception of a line return ("\r")
New line ("\n") pushes the cursor to the next line, but I want to rewrite on the same line by returning the curser to the beginning.

The ("\r") character sends the curser to the next line.

Maybe this is a "termite" issue. Any thoughts?

Hi
You are correct in what you are stating.
From what I can see, it appears that Termite does not accept escape characters.
If you want free software that does what you require, then try Tera Term
It even has a debug mode that allows you to see escape and non ASCII characters.

Thanks for the recommendation - That terminal sends out characters as they are typed into the keyboard. Does not allow for a string to be subsequent to an enter key.

It has a file send option, if that is of any use?

Hi

I use Terminal, another free offering. It's a bit old but has many features I find useful (https://sites.google.com/site/terminalbpp/).
