I have to unplug and plug my USB device every time to communicate :(

P: 2
I am using a linux machine with an USB port and I have to communicate with a temperature controller which has an UART port and for this I am using a USB to UART Serial Adapter.
port name on my machine is /dev/ttyUSB0
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $port = "/dev/ttyUSB0";
  2. open(SERIALPORT,"+>$port") || die("ERROR SENDING DATA\n");
  3. SERIALPORT->autoflush();
  5. ## in between I am sending data 
  7. print $FILEHANDLE $data;
and receiving back from that temperature controller ##

after all that process I am closing that file handle.

  1. close(SERIALPORT);
code is working fine one time . I am getting correct result .

but when I am trying to run the script second time then it hands at the step when I am sending data to temperature controller
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. print $FILEHANDLE $data;
and for this I have to unplug and plug that USB serial adapter again.after that it is working fine.

I am unable to find out what is the problem.
Can u people figure out what may be the possible reasons for it.

Thanks for your reply in advance.
