thanks for the hint. i already considerd twisted and just looking into
it. i try to setup a webservice with twisted-web and nevow and try to
using the twisted-serial-module for communicating with the serial-port(s).
it's all a bit hard cause there seems not really good documentation
available. if someone knows about good ressources espacially about
twisted.internet.serialport any hint would be appreciated.
