Serial i/o using Borland C++ Builder
Posted on 1997-06-22
I'm trying to write a simple serial instrument controller using Builder.
There doesn't appear to be a specific object for the serial port. I need to select a port, set the parameters (speed, parity, etc.) and then read & write control records. I'll need to log and act on the read data continuously while the user accesses other menus too. Surely a common enough requirement? But since I'm new to Windows and Builder programming, I'd appreciate a fairly detailed answer...
Many thanks in advance.
