.I line
should be a (pseudo-)serial device (e.g. /dev/ttySO on Linux for serial port
0).
When this flag is given
remaining arguments are used as flags for
.BR stty(1).
By default st initializes the serial line to 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit
and a 38400 baud rate. The speed is set by appending it as last argument
(e.g. 'st -l 115200'). Arguments before the last one are
.BR stty(1)
flags. If you want to set odd parity on 115200 baud use for example 'st -l
parenb parodd 115200'. Set the number of bits by using for example 'st -l cs7
115200'. See
.BR stty(1)
for more arguments and cases.
.TP
.B \-v
