library “libdivecomputer”

#include <libdivecomputer/serial.h>
dc_serial_open(dc_iostream_t **iostream, dc_context_t *context, const char *name);

Opens an iostream for a serial device. Accepts a context opened with dc_context_new(3) and a name device name, usually found through dc_serial_iterator_new(3) with dc_serial_device_get_name(3).
Upon returning DC_STATUS_SUCCESS, the iostream pointer must be freed with dc_iostream_close(3).

Returns DC_STATUS_SUCCESS on success or one of several error values on error. On success, the iostream pointer is filled in with an open handle.

dc_context_new(3), dc_iostream_close(3), dc_usbhid_open(3), dc_irda_open(3), dc_bluetooth_open(3), dc_serial_iterator_new(3), dc_serial_device_get_name(3).
