Details

Enabling/disabling the serial port does not automatically clear its buffers, this is done via ser.rxclear and ser.txclear. Notice that certain properties can only be changed and methods executed when the port is not enabled. These are ser.rtsmap, ser.ctsmap, ser.mode, ser.redir. You also cannot allocate buffer memory for the port (do sys.buffalloc) when the port is enabled.
