Access python console via serial port?

Completed

Hello,

Does PyCharm support the ability to open a console window (for REPL) which is accessed by serial port (e.g. USB)?  Currently I have to use the "screen" CLI tool.  But it would be nice if I could do the same within PyCharm. 

Sorry if this has been answered before, I looked, but did not find it discussed.

Thanks,

Larry

You need to use the Embedded Local Terminal tab, instead of the Python Console. You can find information about it here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/2016.1/working-with-embedded-local-terminal.html

This will allow you to use screen just like you would on your normal terminal.
