    I just purchased a inexpensive ($20) serial adapter for the USB port
    on a Powerbook G4. I am running 10.3.3. I need to read a few bytes of
    serial data and send out a few bytes. what software could i use to do
    this. The vendor offered some OSX drivers, which I installed, but I
    don't know what mini-app could find the serial port and talk to it ?

    Maybe try a serial terminal emulation. "ZTerm" is the first word that
    comes to my mind here. You find it on the net.
