Sinking Data


Setting this property to 1- YES causes the serial port to automatically discard all incoming data without passing it to your application. The on_ser_data_arrival event will not be generated, reading ser.rxlen will always return zero, and so on. No data will be reaching its destination even in case of buffer redirection . Escape characters , however, will still be detected in the incoming data stream.
