[OT] Serial Input Question

I'm posting this to the list because I am hoping I can do this in linux not
only for free, but also with greater functionality.

I am looking at this software http://www.taltech.com/products/comfile.html to
be able to read data off a serial input.

I have a printer in my comm center that tracks our 911 calls. We are
currently spewing the data to tractor fed paper and while not only jamming,
it sometimes runs out of paper and people don't notice it for a while.

I'd like to be able to read this data from the RS232 port, and have it write
to a file. I'd like to be able to archive the data based on dates. I'm sure
I can do this with cron.

Is anyone else on the list capturing RS232 data, and logging it?
