Serious PropellerIDE serial terminal problems on MacOS High Sierra
Hi all - this is my first post here,
Is anyone else having problems with the PropellerIDE serial terminal running under MacOS High Sierra? The IDE seems to open up two serial ports:
The terminal connects to /dev/cu.usbserial-A504G07R, and this causes everything to stop working. The terminal doesn't work, and I can no longer download code to the Propeller until I disconnect and reconnect to a different USB port. Then when I try to download, the download works, but the IDE crashes. When I start it up again, I am back to square 1 - I can download Propeller code, but any attempt to use the terminal causes everything to fail as just described.
I am not a serial comms expert, but with a little experimentation, I found that if I connect to /dev/tty.usbserial-A504G07R using the screen command then it the Parallax Serial Terminal object works as advertised. Here is the screen command I used:
screen /dev/tty.usbserial-A504G07R 115200
However, if I try to connect to the other port (the one the terminal connects to), then everything fails:
screen /dev/cu.usbserial-A504G07R 115200
I think the terminal is connecting to the wrong port... It should be connecting to /dev/tty.usbserial-A504G07R rather than /dev/cu.usbserial-A504G07R
Is anyone else having this problem, or does anyone know of a fix? It is holding me up pretty badly - I really need to get the terminal working ASAP.
Thanks for your help!
