Hi,
I'd like to know the source code for the following program, anything will be appreciated:

Port Communication,
Input: N/A
Process: The Program demonstrates the use of Turbo-Pascal to communicate with the Serial Port, check the status e.g. 'Port Address' and 'Baud Rate' whether it's open or closed or connected to an external Device such as Modem.
Output: Display the status of the Serial Port.

Thanks in Advance..

Hello!
The program is in Pascal- I'm doing this for my course-, but C is most welcome. I do apology for the above matter.

If you are doing this for your course, why are you asking us to write the code for you?

Hi,
I don't know where to start, any idea?
It's not an assignment, it's just a thought on computer devices etc.

Tnx..

You are really looking for a quick answer, aren't you? May the Internet be with you :D
Ascentia everywhere:
http://www.computing.net/programming/wwwboard/forum/5554.html

Why don't you use the net to find the source - if you really don't want to bother with it - perfroming a quick search on e.g. google?
Just type "Serial port AND Pascal AND source" in google's search box, and you're done.

However, I must say, the world is getting full of "programmers" who get their diplom this way. Why don't you try to figure out yourself how to do such - not too complicated things - by yourself?

Nowadays you can see many "professional" programmers, who have chosen this job only because it's worth it -financially!

I'm dissappointed, really. When I started programming there was no Internet, me and those of my kind spent days and nights looking for solutions, worked over the summer just to buy a bigger hard drive and expensive books - and I never thought of doing this for money.

That's my problem! Programming has become a "trendy" job, it's all about the money...where money interferes, the art dies!

May I suggest China or North Korea? :p

Ok, I don't mind if I'm well-payed for my work :D

My idea is that no one should start programming *just* because it's well-payed.

By the way, China has become a "threat" for software companies, as they have skilled programmers, and work cheap!

Not speaking of russians...

However, I get the joke, SMurf :)

Hi!
Yes, I have posted this message in computing.net forum as well, :-) that was quick!

Here's a book:

'Interfacing with C'
H. Hutchings, ISBN: 0-7506-4831-7

I'm sure there's something in that, as far as I'm concern!

Good work guys,
God bless..

Hi,
The project.. it was cancelled. The idea was mine and wanted to do some exercise, however my tutor encouraged me to do other, easier for this stage, assignments.
I still have the idea(!) and I'll prepare it, sure I'll post the source code.
Thanks..

The art does not die until the artist do...

Art isn't art until after the artist dies. How much do you think Picasso's masterpieces were worth at his time? :)

"Code" and "source" are sinonyms, don't you think?

Magos, maybe I'm wrong, but Picasso's pictures were really trendy - even in his life.
But e.g. Van Gogh was indeed really poor, nearly starving - he has eaten his left ear :)

Ya, maybe. I'm no expert on artists :).

Regarding the "code" and "source", "source" sounds more like "force" than "code" does, that's his point.

...I understand what you are saying...and of course art lives forever...but the subject of how programming has lost it's art form...and that there are only a few programmers who see it as art and not money...but if you do not see programming as money...and you enjoy what you do...the art form will not disapear unless you die and you have not transmitted that passion to someone else...so the key is to pass on the passion for the art and not for the money...before you go...

...I perhaps did not verbalise well what I wanted to say...I am known for that...verbage is not my strength...:D ...

Me neither, and my English is not as good to get such jokes :). Anyhow, thanks for the clarification!
