CoolTerm1.6.0 Build 708
CoolTerm: A simple serial port terminal applicationCoolTerm is a pretty handy serial port terminal application that allows professionals and hobbyists alike to transfer data between various hardware using the serial ports. The application easy to install but it requires a certain degree of setting-up and knowledge.
You can configure anything serial-port related such as the baud rate, port number, parity and more and supports both raw and line mode. Keep in mind the application isn't actually emulating a terminal.
The interface is clean and straight-forward and displays all the messages received text or ASCII if needed. Alternatively, you can send different commands to the connected hardware either using files or commands and check out the returning responses on your screen.
It's clear this software is aimed more towards users that know their way around terminals and COM ports but CoolTerm comes with a decent documentation package that allows users to familiarize themselves with different parameters, commands and other important factors. Moreover, most interface parameters offer in-app tooltips when hovering the mouse cursor.
As a conclusion, CoolTerm is a very powerful application that has a lot of uses, from connecting to old devices to servo controllers, robotic kits, GPS receivers, microcontrollers, etc.
