how to write multiports serial application
i m going to use NP5610-16 moxa device for multiport serial communication.
i m using fedora-core 6 o.s.
after installation it will detect serial ports as /dev/ttyr0,/dev/ttyr1 .....etc
now i want to write application which monitor all serial ports and received data from particular serial ports.
after that it send data on particular port.

plz help me to sort out this issue
