I am in need of a basic set of serial port functions to send/receive data from the com ports. I have looked through many books and have only found MSComm, the Active X control, and a few other incomplete libraries. I would be satisfied with MSComm (I believe) if I could find some C++ documentation on it (all I find is VB). SO: I am looking for a good serial solution. The soln must have basic readChar, writeChar, readBlock, writeBlock functionality. That's it. No error checking or anything else. Any ideas?
