I've been thinking about this as well. I was thinking along the lines of
retargeting the methods on the SerialChip class so that Einstein could
read/write to a pipe on the host file system that other applications could
access. Maybe even Basilisk could be configured to read/write to that
pipe and allow one emulated system to connect to another.
I had hoped it would be simple-- a getch/putch interface that could be
easily retargeted. Looking at the symbols, I think its more complicated
than I thought. There is a registry of serial devices
(SerialChipRegistry) which I assume is for adding/removing PCMCIA devices,
an possibly the built in ports. The SerialChip class is a bit more
complicated than just a source/sync of bytes. In the end, the idea is
probably above my understanding of how NewtonOS handles the serial ports.
