     The command cu calls up another UNIX system, a terminal,  or
     possibly  a  non-UNIX  system.  It  manages  an  interactive
     conversation with possible transfers of files.  It  is  con-
     venient to think of cu as operating in two phases. The first
     phase is the connection phase in  which  the  connection  is
     established.  cu  then enters the conversation phase. The -d
     option is the only one that applies to both phases.

/dev/*cu* has implications for how the serial port is set up.  often a
single serial port will have several different device files, suited for
different uses.
