Mellow Panda is a LINUX daemon which acts as a generic TCP/IP to RS-232/USB gateway, useful for controlling almost any serial device. The Mellow Panda distribution includes example clients in C and bash. Uniden Bearcat radio scanners (BC-780-XLT) and Icom PCR type radios (i.e. PCR1000) are supported. The sources for Mellow Panda are available on Source Forge.
