Serial Port Monitoring and Barcode readers

I am trying to write a piece of software for home product use.  I have a serial barcode reader and need to be able to read a general barcode in.
How would I instigate this as I dont know how I read from a barcode reader or how to have the serial port monitored to do this.

there were some others but prices were a bit much.

Thanks for the links, though I still need to try and get my head around the code as it is a lot more complicated than I am used to.
