Then maybe you are still in time to back out and look around for a
sensible alternative.

Serial port IO is dead simple in Tcl - have a look at the Tcl 'open'
man page.  I'm sure Python has something good too.

You should use a tool like strace to tell you what the underlying
error is at the system level.  It's probably a permissions problem.
