Serial port parameters

I am trying to use a rs232 device through a USB serial port on my MacBook pro laptop. I think the device needs the communication parameters to be
9600 n 8 1
my question is does anyone know what the default communication parameters are for mac os x 10.5.7 unix? And if the default communication parameters are different then what my device needs, how I would go about changing them?

Net::CLI::Interact::Transport::Serial - Serial-line based CLI connection VERSION
version 1.121640 DECRIPTION
This module provides a wrapped instance of a Serial-line client for use by Net::CLI::Interact. INTERFACE
app On Windows platforms you must download the "plink.exe" program, and pass its location to the library in this parameter. On other platforms, this defaults to "cu", which again you must download and install. runtime_options Based on the "connect_options" hash provided to Net::CLI::Interact on construction, selects and formats parameters to provide to "app" on the command line. Supported attributes: FIXME: on Windows platforms, only the device attribute is supported. device (required) Name of the device providing access to the Serial-line (e.g. "/dev/ttyUSB0" or "COM5". parity You have a choice of "even", "odd" or "none" for the parity used in serial communication. The default is "none". nostop You can control whether to use "XON/XOFF" handling for the serial communication. The default is to disable this, so to enable it pass any True value. speed You can set the speed (or baud rate) of the serial line by passing a value to this named parameter. The default is 9600. reap Only used on Unix platforms, this installs a signal handler which attempts to reap the "ssh" child process. Pass a true value to enable this feature only if you notice zombie processes are being left behind after use. COMPOSITION
