Qt and serial port programming


Question

Is there any serial port facilities in Qt ?

If not, which crossplatform (desirable) libraries (for working with serial port and, maybe, with other I/O ports), do you recommend ?

Well, there's always Boost.

In Boost there is a great Async I/O library called ASIO. It can perform operations in all sorts of endpoints, including serial ports.

There is a great example about how to build a minicom-like application using Boost::Asio, that you can use to see if ASIO will attend your needs.

Since boost works on all platforms/compilers under the sun, the cross platform requirement can be checked.

Cheers.
