I wrote a chunk of MCL code to support the comm toolbox.
Check out comm-toolbox.hqx and ctb-streams.sea.hqx on our
ftp site (cambridge.apple.com:/pub/mcl/contrib/) and
on the MCL 2.0.1 cdrom.
The Comm Toolbox is a modular way to get various connections
(over modem, ethernet, etc), terminals (vt100..) and
file transfer protocols (xmodem...) supported with minimal work.
I think you'll be better off using this than trying to
frob the serial ports directly.

This is reasonable too. You'll need to ask Versaterm how scriptable
