    Log Message:
    Optionally send a prompt to connected user

    Wait up to 10 seconds for a single-char reply to the prompt and if a non-control character was received, use the [TCP:x] (x is the character sent by the user) from the sexpots.ini for the Host and Port values to connect to.

    An experimental feature for Nelgin.

    Re-parse the "TCP" section before sending (optional) Prompt

    We need to re-parse the default sexpots.ini [TCP] section for every new session (when using the Prompt feature) or else there's no way to connect to the default host.

    Also, telnet to be enabled or disabled (e.g. by setting Telnet=false) in any [TCP] or [TCP:x] section to support a mix of Telnet and non-Telnet hosts.

    Log Message:
    Parse/apply [COM:x] section upon prompted key press of 'x'

    Another hack for Nelgin: this'll allow (in theory) the serial device to switch parity modes (e.g. 8N1 or 7E1) depending on what the user selects (key pressed).

    I did not add byte/stop bit size configurations. We may need that.

    Modified Files:
    src/sexpots/sexpots.c
    Log Message:
    Don't call com_setup() unless an alternate [COM:x] section is loaded

    Apparently com_setup() (which just calls tcsetattr()) will cause an attached modem (with a caller) to disconnect the caller. So you can't do this with a live modem. Leave the hack in for Nelgin's null modem cable setup, but you can't (apparently) support both 8N1 and 7E1 "callers" with a real modem (not surprisingly, for multiple reasons).

    This is just a single retry (after a yield) after any modem command char send failure (for any reason), including the terminating carriage-return.

    im guessing that it's the &W he has at the end of the init string. some modems (including mine for some reason) won't send an OK when they get that.

    as you can see in a previous message, mine is a lot longer than his but works fine. I think his EAGAIN could be a resource conflict in some form of buffer maybe. ie sending data too fast (not that it should matter).

    not knowing his setup i couldnt answer that, but i would put money on it being on a cheap usb/serial adapter :D

    i think it's because some people throw settings that cant be stored with that method in the ram. i wouldn't even use a long init string. keep it simple.
