    Communicating with the Comm ports.

    Wondering if anyone had any good links or tutorials on learning how to interact with your com ports (self made inventions ). Thanks - dfuzer

    Interacting with a standard COM port is not difficult. Use CreateFile() to get a handle for the port then use the handle based I/O routines to read and write.

    Look at the help associated with CreateFile(), espeacialliy the section on "Communication resources", and check out some of the links from there. This should get you going, or if nothing else, give you the right keywords to use for a google search.
