Create an iterator to enumerate the serial devices.

library “libdivecomputer”

#include <libdivecomputer/serial.h>
dc_serial_iterator_new(dc_iterator_t **iterator, dc_context_t *context, dc_descriptor_t *descriptor);

Iterates through the available serial devices matching the given descriptor. Accepts a context opened with dc_context_new(3) and a descriptor usually found by searching through dc_descriptor_iterator(3).
On returning DC_STATUS_SUCCESS the iterator will be set to an dc_iterator_t which can be used to iterate the available serial devices using dc_iterator_next(3).
The value type of the iterator is of type dc_serial_device_t. This value can be used in functions to extract information about this specific serial device, namely dc_serial_device_get_name(3) When done the serial device needs to be freed with dc_serial_device_free(3).
After iterating the iterator needs to be freed using dc_iterator_free(3).

Returns DC_STATUS_SUCCESS on success, or another dc_status_t code on failure.
On DC_STATUS_SUCCESS the returned iterator needs to be freed when done using dc_iterator_free(3).

dc_context_new(3), dc_usbhid_iterator_new(3), dc_irda_iterator_new(3), dc_bluetooth_iterator_new(3), dc_serial_device_get_name(3), dc_serial_device_free(3).
