i am currently in Madrid Spain and working at an internship.
my task is to do some C programming.
my task is to take some information from a port on the computer (COM 3) and save it, sort it and put it into a notepad file. the info coming through is raw hex and is not very important.
the problem is that i am not sure if it possible or how to read the com port in C programming and how to put in a real time clock into the system. i have seen some theories but nothing works!! the clock is very important as at the start of every hour, a new file must created.
other wise, the sorting and rearranging i can do perfectly fine.
any help would be greatly appreciated or even a kick in the right direction!!
thanks in advance
