I'm trying to use Octave and an add on package called Instrument Control (http://wiki.octave.org/Instrument_control_package) to read in serial data through the USB port. Right now I'm just sending test data through the port. Zeros and ones.
I'm getting correct data through the USB when I use Screen: screen /dev/ttyUSB1
I get strange data when I try to use octave though. I think I'm doing something wrong. Here's an example. I think I should be getting 0 or 1 from srl_read
> pkg load all > s1 = serial("/dev/ttyUSB1", 9600) s1 = 3 > srl_read(s1,1) ans = 49
