Yes, there's something wrong (in my case).
The fril javadocs are not downloadable.
RXTX appears to be fairly close to abandonware at present. The rxtx.org
host doesn't respond to HTTP requests or pinging. The domain is
registered by Godaddy until December, but ownership details just show
Domains by Proxy. There is a Sourceforge project but it has no files and
there is an Android port too.
The sources for Windows, IOS and Linux can be found at
RXTX may be a Java class library, but there is evidently a healthy amount
of native code needed to interface the RxTx package to the underlying OS,
primarily because serial i/o is anything but standardised outside the
I think your best bet may be to grab the source tarball from
rxtx.sourcearchive.com, see what documentation there is in the tarball
and then feed the Java source through javadocs.
It is possibly a bad sign that I couldn't find either a build.xml (for
Ant) or a Makefile (for the C sources) in the published file list. I have
no idea what, if any, C documentation tool, should be used: you might
like to try Cdoc since I wrote it to do sensible things if you point it
at vanilla C.
serial IO and use some sort of conversion device. I've used a couple
available. If he is developing for XP then the old Sun javax.comm
package is the way to go. It works pretty well and didn't have the bugs
that RXTX had. The Sun software has been unsupported for years but I
know it still works just fine on XP.
