serial-unix 0.4.0

Serial port implementation for Unix.

Unix Serial Ports

The serial-unix crate provides a serial port implementation for Unix operating systems.


The serial-unix crate is compatible with any Unix operating system that implements the termios API. The following platforms are confirmed to be compatible:

  • Linux (x86_64, armv6l)
  • OS X (x86_64)
  • FreeBSD (amd64)
  • OpenBSD (amd64)


In general, one shouldn't need to use the serial-unix library directly. The implementation provided by serial-unix is also exposed through a cross-platform API in the serial crate.

The serial port type defined in serial-unix works with any Unix TTY device. In addition to implementing the standard serial port traits, it also implements std::os::unix::io::AsRawFd, which can be used for integrating with other I/O libraries. See examples/ for an example of using AsRawFd for event-driven I/O.
