Routine accessing com port & logging
Posted on 1998-10-23
I am VERY new to C++, but I have had a request to design a program, and I
think it is beyond me.
"A project with a no timetable is starting and now (in the beginning) at the
design time, is the best time to involve you
1) I need a routine that will open a windows Comm port,
read that data entering through it then pass it to a windows handler.
2) Using a Windows Message to tickle a list of users logged into the
(in-house) Server cause the Node to activate a local(node station) program
bringing a (current window) that is hidden, up-front and in your face.
Maybe even play a WAV file to-boot."
Do you have any suggestion on books or examples that may be helpful. ANYTHING would be much appreciated. I not sure if I should even attempt this at my level, but I am itching to try!
Thank you for you input.
P.S. What is the basic difference (in learning and appllying) between C++ & VC++?
