How to use the Com Port Manager robot skill

This robot skill displays your system's COM/Serial ports opened by script commands. The script commands for accessing COM ports are in the script manual for your specific language (ez-script, javascript, or python) in the website's support section. If you want to display communication data in real-time use the Microsoft's PortMon. This robot skill shows if a COM port is open or closed by a script. There is no way to view the communication log of the COM port in this robot skill.

*Note: these are local COM/Serial ports on your PC, not the UART on the EZ-B.
