Basically, I need to issue text commands to the driver, receive text
responses, and receive unsolicited text notifications.
I had a feeling that the use of /proc for this purpose was not
recommended. What alternative would you recommend? Can you point me to
some example code?

I'd like to, but there are a number of constraints on the project, and
it's imperative that we continue development on 2.4 in the short term. We
will be moving to 2.6 within the next 6 months.
Thanks for replying so quickly :)
