"Exactly what I was looking for"

June 13, 2009  |  By bionics_eng

 |  Version: CoolTerm for Mac 1.0.0


This review was originally posted on
I'm talking to hardware with a protocol that uses characters like 0x04 and 0x02 which be sent with any other terminal using keystrokes, and this app definitely beats having to create text files with these characters and sending them to hardware using Hyperterminal on the PC.
Also, being able to view responses from the target in Hex format is really helpful.
