Arria10 - Send linux command to the CPU through UART without minicom ?

Honored Contributor II

Good morning, 


I am using an ARRIA10 Dev kit board which Linux is installed in the SD card and I can access it by using Minicom. 


In the embedded linux, I have a small program I could use with parameters. 

From the computer connected to the board, I would like to run a command and read the result. (in a C/JS/Ruby program) 


for example: from my Ruby program located in my desktop computer, I'd like to send the `cat afile.txt` command in the embedded Linux and see the value of the file. 


I didn't find any clue, is it possible ? (I guess so otherwise it's should be pretty useless) 


Thank you very much.
