As far as I know, Keil's emulator is the only one with USEFUL serial
support, but enabling it really kills the emulator's performance... plus
it's an old DOS emulator... Other emulators, if the have serial support at
all, is usually "dump output of bitbanger to a text file" and that's it.

I think Drivewire may be an option if you're using os9.
