Ah, but it ain't much. Invoked like this: ./kiss-off.pl >/dev/ttyS1
And here are the only real lines of code:
printf("%c%c%c", 192, 255, 192);
No "expect" used, in fact no two-way communication at all. Completely open-loop. Who wrote this piece of crap? ;-)
Even as-is, I found it useful. For automated rebooting you'll want something more.
