Serial Communication Code example

I have a target box connected to my desktop (x86 Windows 2000) PC
through a serial cable (COM port). The target box running on different
processor and OS. The target box needs to send a specific formatted
data (2 bytes header + 128 bytes data) asynchronously through the
serial port and I've to capture it at the host PC side and save those
into a file.

I like to have the client-server model. The PC will be a server and
start a forever loop process to wait for client's (target box) data
and read its COM port and collect those data and save in a file. Note
that, client target box runs a process which sends those data after
some asynchronous event occurs.

Please refer me to any code example either in C or C++ for
implemneting the establishment of serial communication, read the data
from COM port etc. at the host PC side.

The standard C language, the topic of this group, has no support for
any hardware devices at all. All input and output is defined strictly
in terms of <stdio.h> FILE * streams.

You need to ask this question in a group that supports your particular
compiler/OS combination, to find out what non-standard extensions
might be available for this sort of thing. Just specifying that it is
a PC is not nearly enough. The extensions will be completely
different on the same PC depending on whether it is running MS-DOS,
Windows, Solaris, Linux, BSD, OS/2, or some other operating system.

I'm working in an aplication for a Smart Device that need to "talk" with a printer continuosly through the serial port. I'm trying to use the John Hint's sample code "Use P/Invoke to develop a .NET Base Class Library for Serial Device Communication" but I'm new with VC# and need some basic rules because I have a lot of compilation errors. Where should I create my inherited class? Thank you

I wrote a program that communicate with SerialComm. In every 300 milliseconds, my program continuously send & receive data via the serial port once the program starts. My program is once in a while, the serial port seems corrupted because when my data is sent, it doesn't go through the serial port, so as same to receive process. In order to fix this, I have to close the port and reopen the port again. Why?!! Is there any way to fix...

Hi, every 250 ms (timer event) I must send several commands via serial port. The serial unit will answer to each command sent. I must wait the answer before send the next command. How can I achieve this? I receive the incoming data in the "data received" event of the serial port. Furthermore I need to manage a timeout: if I receive no answer within a specified amount of time an event will be generated.

Hi all, I'm a newbie in .NET technology. I've already developed Serial communication applications in C++ (WIN32). And I wanted to migrate to .NET technology. There is a serial component in framework to read and write on serial port. I would like to make asynchronous reception. I saw that we can pass a delegate to the serial class which is call when some data is readen on the port.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
