 * <b>MODSERIAL</b> extends the Mbed library <a href="/handbook/Serial">Serial</a> to provide fully buffered
 * TX and RX streams. Buffer length is fully customisable. 
 *
 * Before using MODSERIAL users should be familar with Mbed's standard <a href="/handbook/Serial">Serial</a>
 * library object. MODSERIAL is a direct "drop in" replacement for <a href="/handbook/Serial">Serial</a>. Where
 * previously Serial was used, MODSERIAL can be used as adirect replacement instantly offering standard
 * TX and RX buffering. By default, both TX and RX buffers are 256 bytes in length.
 *
 * @image html /media/uploads/mbedofficial/serial_interfaces.png
 *
 * Standard example:
 * @code
 * #include "mbed.h"
 * #include "MODSERIAL.h"
 *
 * MODSERIAL pc(USBTX, USBRX); // tx, rx
 *
 * int main() {
 *     pc.printf("Hello World!");
 *     while(1) {
 *         pc.putc(pc.getc() + 1);
 *     }
 * }
 * @endcode
 *
 * Example with alternate buffer length:
 * @code
 * #include "mbed.h"
 * #include "MODSERIAL.h"
 *
 * // Make TX and RX buffers 512byes in length
 * MODSERIAL pc(USBTX, USBRX, 512); // tx, rx
 *
 * int main() {
 *     pc.printf("Hello World!");
 *     while(1) {
 *         pc.putc(pc.getc() + 1);
 *     }
 * }
 * @endcode
 *
 * Example with alternate buffer length:
 * @code
 * #include "mbed.h"
 * #include "MODSERIAL.h"
 *
 * // Make TX 1024bytes and RX 512byes in length
 * MODSERIAL pc(USBTX, USBRX, 1024, 512); // tx, rx
 *
 * int main() {
 *     pc.printf("Hello World!");
 *     while(1) {
