#188301 - Shouldn't do, but...
Responding to: Erik Malund's previous message
Erik Malund said:
/ No Parity / 7 Bit Data (Character length).

this often (sic?) means parity bit ignored/parity bit to be zero


"No Parity" should mean exactly that: there is no parity bit; it is absent; missing; not present - gone to the great bit bucket in the sky...

If the parity bit is present, but always at a fixed state, that should be described as Mark/Space parity, or similar.

However, we all know that abuse of terminology is rife these days...


:-(
