      I don't have a Borland C manual. How do you use Borlandc's  BIOS.COM ? I have tried following the help topic in the C++ compiler but the "OVERFLOW ERROR" status bit is set true and no data appeares in the lower byte.I am sure my problem is incorrect usage of BIOS.COM. I am not familliar with the proper syntax and usage.I am trying to setup a simple RS232 serial port. I am doing this in the Windows 95 enviorment-not in dos mode or dos prompt.

In the first check your hardware by Norton Commander
(F9 -> "Terminal Emulation"). It is important because
NC is a DOS application.
Inform the result of this check.

Borland BIOC.COM works only in DOS application.
You can't use it for Windows Programm. You must use
OpenComm and so on from Window API.

I looked in the help menu (Borlandc)and did not find it listed. The open commands I saw reffered to opening files. Could you please send an example and/or expand on it's usage? Will this work with conio.h or is a special headder or prototype required?

                     Thanks!
