PComm::PCOpen ( const char *  pcrDev = PCRDEV,
tcflag_t  baudRate = B9600 

Opens another file descriptor to the serial device.

pcrDev Serial port device to be opened.
baudRate Initial serial speed.
Opens a file descriptor to the device pcrDev (which is by default your system's PCRDEV define) at the speed baudRate (which is by default as delinated in your termios.h set to 9600 baud).

Warning: You can only call this as long as the object is alive. If you do destry the object remember to call this function only after setting up the port configuration correctly.

true or false based on success value.
