I'm doing a project for win95/NT that will need to handle some i/o on a serial port. Thus far I have been unable to find any books, web pages, or source code showing how to do this with MFC. Pointers to some good resources and/or source code appreciated.

One solution is to use the MSCOMM32 control that ships with Visual C++. See the VCTERM sample in the product; it demonstrates the control quite aggressively.

Another solution is to buy a third party library (or control).  Greenleaf has been in the communications library business longer than anyone in the PC market.  If you can't afford a library, you might want to cull the web for freeware libraries that people have written.

A third approach is to use the WIN32 APIs directly. There are a few samples that show how, like the MTTTY sample in the knowledge base or the TTY sample in the SDK.
