Hi Mark

I was delighted to read about Heather's ability to talk to a timing M12.  I
have been having fits here trying to get the M12 to accept any command
(using Perl.. a mistake it seems).  i wanted to end up with a Linux capable
utility and had previously used Perl to parse NEMA on my old TAC2.

I have been learning about binmode(M12) and other edge cases, but am
probably still far from the eureka moment..

anyhow, i am setting up heather5 for a trial flight.
