I have a question about linux tty driver 

how to support cp, cat operations in tty driver (like tiny_tty)?
(e.g. echo "hello tty" > /dev/ttyS3, cat < ttyS10 etc)

There a lot of examples with char drivers, but I could not find it for tty Linux driver.

It works out of the box. Just keep hardware flow-control turned off
if there are no receivers connected to the output port. Also, you need
to set up the port's baud-rate and (usually) to make it transparent to
control characters (man tc-get/set-attr).

Thanx for your respond.

Does it mean I have to change nothing in my tty driver (based on serial_core.c) to use: cat and cp? No "nonstandard " special functions to implement?

Change nothing. It you are making your own, make sure your iocl() function
returns the same kinds of errors as the in-kernel one.

You can check out the existing in-kernel driver as:

strace cp filename /dev/ttyS0

I have a question about linux tty driver 

how to support cp, cat operations in tty driver (like tiny_tty)?
(e.g. echo "hello tty" > /dev/ttyS3, cat < ttyS10 etc)

There a lot of examples with char drivers, but I could not find it for tty
Linux driver.
