I have recently brought a Smart-Card Reader and with all the necessary C language programming textbook, I just don't know how to start, What I actually look forward to is to get me PC communicating with the Smart Card reader.  Subsequently, I might learn how to write a program to test, read and write Smart Card.  I woiuld appreciate if any of the experts can help.  The header of the programme should consists of the following header:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <scptsr_c.c>

Thank you ver much.

The scope of this problem is MUCH LARGER than we could dive into here; I would recommend you find "The Windows API Bible" by Conger. The book includes a simple overview of serial communications in MSWindows, and will give you a start on understanding the Windows messaging system.

good luck...

If there are points in this for me I could give you a good answer !

Let me know the interface of the smartcard ...

ps. It is probably better to use the parallel port for this !
    I have done this before using the parallel port on other
    types of card readers.
