Subject: [Boost-users] [asio] virtual/emulated serial ports?

Does asio, or another boost API, allow developers to create a virtual or
emulated serial port?

By virtual or emulated, I mean, creating a software serial port that looks
and feels just like the physical hardware, with device protocol to boot.

Or something like a serial-tcp/ip bridge might be satisfactory as well.

Oh, free, or not as expensive, is preferred, of course... :)

Thank you...

Best regards,
