unsigned char ucByte;

	int nCount;

	BOOL bHave_start_char = FALSE;

	

	DWORD dwStart_time = GetTickCount ();

	

	while (GetTickCount () - dwStart_time < 500) {

		while (m_pRS232->RXCount () > 0) {

			m_pRS232->Read_Buffer ((char*) &ucByte, 1);

	

//			#ifdef _DEBUG

//				Debug__Send_Byte_to_Output_Wnd (ucByte);

//			#endif

	

			if (bHave_start_char == FALSE) {

				if (ucByte == '~') {													//  TRUE = Have the start character

					bHave_start_char = TRUE;

					nCount = 1;

				}

	

				continue;

			}

	

			switch (nCount) {

				case 1: if (ucByte != (unsigned char) '\x00') break; nCount++; continue;			//  Number of bytes, MSB

				case 2: if (ucByte != (unsigned char) '\x03') break; nCount++; continue;			//  Number of bytes, LSB

				case 3: if (ucByte != (unsigned char) '\x89') break; nCount++; continue;			//  API Identifier TxD status

				case 4: if (ucByte != (unsigned char)    'm') break; nCount++; continue;			//  Frame ID

				case 5: if (ucByte != (unsigned char) '\x00') break; nCount++; return TRUE;		//  Status byte, '\x00' = Successful

			}

I think that it will be easier to see what the function should do and rewrite it...

Nno you cannot do that and i am doing the translation for you.   But the best is to do as Dhaest say, identify the function input and ouptut.  Because in the bribe of code you submitted there is a rs232 port mentionned there which is not declare in this code portion.
