Perl Module for phone modem

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Mark J Fenbers, Jan 29, 2004.

  1. I've been tasked with writing code to dial telemetry equipment through a phone
    modem as a backup means to our existing method of acquiring data. My plan is to
    use Perl on a Linux box to do this, but the last time I did this sort of stuff
    was years ago when Procomm+ was popular and network cables were not.

    Is there a Perl Module available to make this coding task a bit easier for me??

    I think so ... you could search http://search.cpan.org/ using the keyword
    of 'modem' or 'serial'. I seem to remember seeing one or two that may fit
    the bill.
