Just to clarify why I felt so unsafe about the proper serial device 

I just installed a Prolific and a Keyspan USB serial converter on my 
A GUI app tells me their names as: keyserial-port and usbserial-port.

/dev contains:


This doesn't look as worse as I had expected, but it shows I had a 
reason to ask ;-)

Found this one:

'The "cu" version of the name requires fewer handshaking lines from the
end device than the "tty" version of the name. '

And (from Apple):

// Get the callout device's path (/dev/cu.xxxxx).
// The callout device should almost always be
// used. You would use the dialin device (/dev/tty.xxxxx) when
// monitoring a serial port for
// incoming calls, for example, a fax listener.

Any idea how I can set serial port options, speed, etc.? I guess it 
defaults to 9600,8,N,1 anyway?
