ssterm (是 "simple serial-port terminal" 的缩写) 是一个基于控制台的串口通信终端，使用 curses 和标准输入输出界面。支持十六进制数据呈现、传输重新映射以及接收新行，新行符号使用颜色标识，缓冲区滚动和显示，数据管道等等特性。
ssterm 1.5 改进记录：
1. The Escape character has been changed from Ctrl-[ to the more unique Ctrl-], which does not serve as the escape code for many other special keys and cause ssterm to quit on them like Ctrl-[ did.
2. Split hexadecimal/ASCII representation mode formatting has been modified to conform to “hexdump -C” canonical split output.
