How do I access the USB port using pyserial? I have seen an example with:
import serial ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyUSB0')
I used to access the serial port from MATLAB on Windows and using the appropriate syntax,
/dev/ttyUSB0 would be replaced by
COM1 or any other COM port.
I'm on a Mac and I tried using the serial port scanners on the
pyserial documentation to no avail. I think I should write it like this:
import serial name = ? # Names of serial ports on Mac OS X ser = serial.Serial(name)
How do I find out what
name should be on a Mac?
EDIT: In response to an answer below, I'd like to find out how to access both USB to RS232 converters as well as pure USB ports.
