You need a middleware writer. Is there someone there who can write this in C for you? I have medical equipment that I get data from through a serial port and I use C.

If you are merely sending data, you can do this through any valid connection, but you may have to go to xml.

    I am doing serial I/O with Excel, but I am not an expert. I found a sheet on the web with a comm module (written by a Darren Richards) and have been adapting the routines. The comm module port status sub is clearly incomplete.
I have quite a bit working, except I would like to prevent certain types of errors and do other things and would like some help checking the port status.
My oft used email address has no i's in it

No single raindrop believes it is responsible for the flood.
