    Question serial port, reading from

    Question:
    I need help to figure out how to open and read from a serial port. My C application runs under visual C++ (I don't know if that matters or not) on an PC running NT. Is there any sample code out there that will show me how it's done? Suggestions?
    Thanks!!!

    Thanks Dog, but the info you provided is only for serial comm problems, that is to say, baud rate, etc. What I'm looking for is how to open the serail port for reading (not writing) and how do I read the data that comes across the serial port. Does anyone out there have experience doing this?
