Trigger Shows up in Data

Sun Apr 06, 2008 11:11 pm

Hi, I am using SerialTools in an environment where it is used to read a large volume of reads coming from an RFID reader. I find that occasionally the trigger character ends up in the data string using event mode in v1.0.3705. Also, the trigger character seems to overwrite the first data character. So if the trigger is #, then the correct data would be 12345 (data transmitted is #12345) but then the data coming from the event trigger is #2345, which is incorrect. I had to implement a check to filter out the errors. I did not see a reported bug. Do you know of any?

The trigger is always included.

I don't think SerialTools filters out any data. It is more likely it was never sent. The SerialTools source code is available if you want to check or make any changes.
