Excellent no-frills tool

I was using a free tool that did the job but sucked (crashes, restarts necessary, etc). Then I switched to this tool and my life is good again. It’s totally worth it.

I have one feature request, it would be nice to pipe the output to a file in real time (for logging/analytical purposes). I am using this tool to log numbers coming out of a micro controller, and would like to graph themin real time.

Well Done

Seldom do I see a job done well. Parley is such a piece of work. Clean, simple, no kitchen sink included -- thanks, Buttered Cat Software!

I use this to send data from an Arduino to my Mac eliminating the need for use of the Arduino memory for collecting data. Let the data be where the horsepower is to analyze it.
