Well, that's what I did, and it looks like this, which is nice:
# cat reboot-comcast-cable-modem
Totally cool. By the way, to do the equivalent on Windows, I had to
write 20 lines of C++ code and remember what LPVOID and GetLastError()
mean. Plus, I had to manually setup the baud rate and other settings.
Why does Microsoft hate us?
Since this worked so seamlessly, I think I might buy the bigger version
and start working on my Linux-based sprinkler control project... Hmmm...
