I am using qtalk as a terminal emulator to interface the calibration firmware of a DSP controlled, radio frequency modem. After selecting serial download, the DSP goes into receive mode, waiting for a S-record file to be downloaded to it. At this point, using the CtrlA to get qtalk’s attention, I can use the ‘w’ command to download the S-record file.
Sometimes, the download is aborted because the DSP gets overrun even though the baud rate is only 2400. Is there any way I can get qtalk to insert delays (of approx 1 second) after each line of the file it is sending ? This is standard in Hyperterminal, ProComm, and other terminal emulators. They even allow inter character delays to be specified.
