make monitor on Windows fails on COM port

Code: Select all

$ make monitor
MONITOR

Make flash works perfectly. My DevKitC is on COM4, which is ttyS3 (as configured in menuconfig)

Whoah, Nederlandse fout-berichten in een Python-codedump, da's de eerste keer dat ik dat zie :)

Can you run 'make -V monitor' to see what the command line invoking the monitor command is?

ttyS3 (as configured in menuconfig)
Try COM4 instead

I'll confirm that using the Windows COM notation fixed this error vs. the Linux port notation.

I changed the project menuconfig to the COM notation and the HelloWorld flashed and ran correctly on the monitor.
