NAME

ldattach - attach a line discipline to a serial line  

SYNOPSIS

ldattach [ -dhV78neo12 ] [ -s speed ] ldisc device
 

DESCRIPTION

The ldattach daemon opens the specified device file (which should refer to a serial device) and attaches the line discipline ldisc to it for processing of the sent and/or received data. It then goes into the background keeping the device open so that the line discipline stays loaded.

The line discipline ldisc may be specified either by name or by number.

In order to detach the line discipline, kill(1) the ldattach process.

With no arguments, ldattach prints usage information.  

LINE DISCIPLINES

Depending on the kernel release, the following line disciplines are supported:
TTY(0)
The default line discipline, providing transparent operation (raw mode) as well as the habitual terminal line editing capabilities (cooked mode).
SLIP(1)
Serial Line IP (SLIP) protocol processor for transmitting TCP/IP packets over serial lines.
MOUSE(2)
Device driver for RS232 connected pointing devices (serial mice).
PPP(3)
Point to Point Protocol (PPP) processor for transmitting network packets over serial lines.
STRIP(4)
AX25(5)
X25(6)
Line driver for transmitting X.25 packets over asynchronous serial lines.
6PACK(7)
R3964(9)
Driver for Simatic R3964 module.
IRDA(11)
Linux IrDa (infrared data transmission) driver - see http://irda.sourceforge.net/
HDLC(13)
Synchronous HDLC driver.
SYNC_PPP(14)
Synchronous PPP driver.
HCI(15)
Bluetooth HCI UART driver.
GIGASET_M101(16)
Driver for Siemens Gigaset M101 serial DECT adapter.
PPS(18)
Driver for serial line Pulse Per Second (PPS) source.

Prints a usage message and exits.
-V | --version
Prints the program version.
-s value | --speed value
Set the speed of the serial line to the specified value.
-7 | --sevenbits
Sets the character size of the serial line to 7 bits.
-8 | --eightbits

-n | --noparity
Sets the parity of the serial line to none.
-e | --evenparity
Sets the parity of the serial line to even.
-o | --oddparity
Sets the parity of the serial line to odd.
-1 | --onestopbit
