    Talking output text to hyperterminal

    Hello guys, I would like to output text to the hyperterminal window in Windows XP using my microchip. I am just not sure which function I should use to do it, I tried a bunch of them (printf, putchar, puts???). I was able to establish a serial connection with my computer and my microchip, but I cannot program my chip to output text. Can anyone give me suggestions as to how this works? What functions can be used to output through a serial communication. Thank you!

    Okay. Figure out first who is talking and who is listening.

    If you mean the development platform using the PIC, then you need to figure out serial programming for the device. Until then, this question is moot.

    And again, the vendor is the best source for this information.

    I have already coded the USART connection and I am able to establish a serial connection between my microchip and whatever else I would like to communicate with. I am already communicate with my text to speech module via max232 chip. I was just wondering if there was a standard C function that would be appropriate to use to send text to hyperterminal. Thanks everyone.

    There is little standard C that a freestanding implementation must support. It may be or it may not be. Don't expect too much from the little guys.
