I've had a quick look and taking the strict view that any driver that sends a command but does not wait for a reply is vulnerable then it is quite a lot. All the LX200 based drivers to start with. Some of the drivers don't use a sendCommand() subroutine, the serial writes and maybe reads are embedded in each command. The Moonlite DRO driver is like that.

I spent quite a lot too much of my professional career fighting ths sort of thing on electron microscopes - just the same except that the hardware was more expensive. I had almost no say in what was implemented and one manufacturer seemed to use a different intern to do the external control for each microscope model.

Maybe then tcdrain should be added to tty_write ? Any side-effects for that?

It would, as has been said, slow the writes down some amount, based on the baudrate and length of message. 7mS for ":SNnnnn#" at 9600 baud.

The only side-effect should be a slight delay as the kernel driver waits for the data to be handed off to the hardware.

Jasem fixed it a bit over a week ago. I used the source to build one and it works great.

How do I get the updated driver? I'm probably not capable of building one from source.

I could send you a copy of the one I compiled, although that should raise trust issues. MacOS Catalina 10.15.4 or newer required.

That would be awesome. If you don't mind send it to Andrew at macobservatory dot com. I'm on Catalina 10.15.5. Where is the driver where I would drop it?

Thanks!

I'll send detailed instructions with the file. It isn't too involved.
