Nios II Uart with DMA

In my Nios II system I want to use Uart with DMA. Are there some tutorials or example projects about this topic. 

 

I'm using Quartus 13.0. 

 

Thanks.

It doesn't really make sense to use DMA with a UART. A DMA engine doesn't have a mechanism to stop sending and wait for characters to go out, or wait for input characters to be present before transferring data. The FIFO in a standard UART is so small that the time taken to set up a DMA transfer would be greater than the time to fill the FIFO with a sofware loop.
