I am (very) new to Pi and Linuxy things in general but have been doing quite a lot in just a few weeks with the Pi just using it as a www / serial interface with tools like Cosm and cURL to get and put data on line in the 'Internet of Things' sort of space and can see some real potential here...
How can I control / set the baud rate of the serial terminal via the serial terminal ?
I know this sounds a little 'hairy' but I am prepared to live with the consequences and expect to get a little 'lost in space' at times. It would simplify things greatly for me and allow PIC / Micro's that generally operate in the gracial 2400 - 9600 baud rate region.
In just a few days I have explored and enjoyed the Great simplicity of 'headless pi' via ssh / hard wire serial, tightVNC and made my own serial interface see:

1/. Some command line examples please from / via the serial port itself
2/. I am not sure but feel 'pretty confident' that until I get things right a re boot / cold start would get me back to 115200. Correct ?
3/. I have found an article on changing the boot files (2 of them) to make the default / boot speed different and could live with this but am an absolute beginner so have not crakced the the 8 levels of permission linux funkyness bits thing and or having permission to edit or being allowed to at all is all a bit of a mystery to me. I think I can handle the txt editor !
If I can't get 1 and 2 working then I will opt for 3/.
Thanks in advance
