      Check that this object is ready to operate. This is a question of configuration, not transient hardware status.
      Specified by:
      status in interface PortAdapter
      true if OK, at least as far as known
    • okToSend

      boolean okToSend()
      Can the port accept additional characters? This might go false for short intervals, but it might also stick off if something goes wrong.
      true if OK to send, else false.
    • setOutputBufferEmpty

      void setOutputBufferEmpty​(boolean s)
      We need a way to say if the output buffer is empty or not
      s - true to set buffer empty, else false.
