What's New

Version 14.2.2:
  • Fix - Copying and pasting from MacWise to another app was not working in OS X 10.9 Mavericks (just getting a blank screen pasted). Also, with OS 10.5, paste was working but the colors were wrong.
    Copying all or part of the screen into the clipboard as a graphic picture is done by holding down the Option key while dragging the mouse accross a section of the screen.Or when you more...

Dear Developer,

Please fix MacWise to work for sending a break to Sun Microsystem Unix servers. This does work with Zterm. See the dev's notes.

-- OSX Notes --

Sending Break under OSX:
In 1.1b5 I have implemented the send break function. However, it appears some serial drivers do not implement the necessary control function for this to work. I have a workaround which might work. If you need the send break functionality, try it and see if the driver handles it correctly. If not, quit ZTerm, open up Terminal.app and type the command:

defaults write com.mac.dalverson.ZTerm breakSim '300'

Once this is set, instead of calling tcsendbreak, ZTerm will set the baud rate to the breakSim value, send a NUL, then restore the baud rate. The NUL at a lower speed should look like a break. The lowest value to use would be 50, which should cause a break signal of about 200 ms. I don't know what different drivers do with "non-standard" baud rates, so its probably best to use standard baud rate values.

ZTerm was great BUT it is not a native OSX app.


or iTerm for free (and iTerm is OSX native)
