    hi there,

    I have done this before, sending data serially out and reading in too....but unfortunately not with C, i did it with java. I do have not much idea about C libraries or APIz, is tt ok if i get u java codes, u can go and work on converting to C, i mean u wld atleast get to know the logical flow.

    after all everything is programming and u wld juz need to hunt for the relevant methods and packages. If this is fine with you, buzz me back and shall send ya!!
