I do something similar all the time in MS-DOS: "mode con com1:9600,n,8,1" sets
up console TTY to be read from the serial port. You then just send a program
in "debug script" form, then call "debug < script.ext" and it assembles and
saves the program.

I should say I used to do this a lot -- now I just do it once to get a file
transfer program on there like MS-DOS 6.x's intersvr/interlnk, or FastLynx
(preferred), then transfer files with that instead (uses compression, faster
speeds, etc.)
