Question on COM port

P: n/a
Hi,

this isn't really a C question, but I do not know where else to turn to.

Can anyone please tell me how to get the port number for com port 1 and com
port 2? I tried searching the web but can't understand a single thing. Or
any kind soul pls refer me to the correct news group??
Thanks

SIncerely

Try asking that on the newsgroups Pushkar mentioned. COM ports are not
C language concepts.

Whom would these help, and in what context? And why are you telling
comp.lang.c this?

Try asking in a newsgroup where communication port programming is topical.
For example, comp.os.msdos.programmer, comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32,
or comp.unix.programmer.

The C language doesn't have any commands at all. You're obviously in the
wrong newsgroup.

Are you using an OS or are you programming on the bare hardware?
If you're using an OS, go to a newsgroup dedicated to programming on your
OS, otherwise go to a newsgroup dedicated to your hardware.

Did you try understanding the question *before* replying? If yes, please
explain why the port address associated to a serial port is relevant to
any of these newsgroups? If you're using an OS at all, you don't care
and you don't need to care about hardware port addresses.

BTW, I can't find a newsgroup called comp.lang.linux. Unsurprisingly,
since I've never heard of a programming language called linux. But
maybe I'm missing something.

Anyone doing system programming, I'm just helping him go to the proper
newsgroup.
It's clear from the subject line that's it an OT so those who choose can
neglect this post.
