Hi I am new here so place bear with me
I have never programmed in C/C++ but mainly in .NET C# etc...
What I want to do is this:
I want to open a com port
write to it
thats all! But here is the catch:
I do not wish to connect to a device at all - pretty much just want to send a signal (for no reason for example) and thats it.
I am using a mobile device for this and know that embedded C++ would be the way to go, which is what I have.
the .NET Framework only has IRDA classes which means that you HAVE to connect to another compatible device.
the .NET Framework v2.0 has a serial port class, which seems cool but having problems writing to the com port for some reason.
I thought the best way would be to do it low level, and since im really into low level stuff, I thought i would get started on C++.
I appreciate anyone giving me help on how to do the 3 functions I require.
Please, help me
