The drvSerial code uses the C STDIO library to communicate
so it works with any serial device that has a vxWorks
serial device driver. This code provides only queuing
and framing services. Allen Honey at Keck has a driver which
is layered on drvSerial which can be configured to communicate
with serial devices that communicate over simple command line 
ASCII based protocols. There are also a number of drivers for
specific devices which use drvSerial.
