In general, my migration from Linux to OS X has been pretty trouble-free. However, I was rather surprised to be unable to find any good free serial terminal emulators available. Sure, there are text-based ones like Minicom, but none with the Aqua interface. Since this is a very useful application for my projects, I wrote my own. I use this to test communication with test equipment and microcontrollers.
QuickTerm is a basic ASCII terminal emulator. It can use any attached serial port, whether built-in or installed using an adapter such as a Keyspan USB-to-serial adapter. It allows full setting of serial port parameters, with or without handshaking. The name QuickTerm alludes to the fact that I developed it quickly, forsaking features I don't need to get a decent serial terminal emulator up and running.
I've rebuilt QuickTerm as a universal binary, and fixed a minor bug in the NIB file which prevented it from being compatible with OS X v10.2. I've also added 110 baud as an option in the Port Settings dialog at a user's request on VersionTracker. No other changes were made.
