On an IBM PC Compatiblble, you can use int 14H.

If you want info on the interrupt, I can post it for you.

use assembler...

void main()
{
  asm{
    out reg, reg
    //rest of asm code...
  }
}

Note: Is a register

It's really OS dependent.  If you're using Linux you can open /dev/ttyS? for writing and that should do it... Then just treat it as a regular file descriptor or stream.
