I've scoured for ways to do this using Coolterm and Zterm and can't figure it out.
I have a couple of Arduino sensors transmitting data to a serial to USB. This is connected to a COM port in my Mac at ~1Hz. I can connect to the devices and see the data as expected using Coolterm and screen through the terminal and can log the data for a specific session using Coolterm (this requires clicking 'save to file' and manually stopping when I want).I would like to be able to collect and log data over longer periods of time and have .txt files of the collected data automatically created and saved at specified intervals (create one file per hour).I've scoured for ways to do this using Coolterm and Zterm and can't figure it out. Is there perhaps a way to do it using the Mac terminal and some shell scripts? Am I overlooking something basic? Thanks all.
