Sorry if this is a bit 'me-too-ish' but I would second this request.
Since being upgraded (or should that be downgraded?!) to solaris 2.3
our Calcomp Drawingboard II digitizer refuses to talk to our sun.

Having stuck a terminal between digi' & 'puter v.digit does not seem
to be sending the correct initialisation string from the file in
etc/digitizers as specified in the digicap file.
