What''s the easiest way to open up a com port and spit some text out it? HANDLE hComFile; CreateFile("Com1",... SetCommDCB (or whatever) is their a way with less stuff? Like an OpenComm(1, 9600, 8, 0, noparity); ?

FILE *fp = fopen("COM1");



If that doesn't work try this:

quote:

FILE *fp = fopen("COM1:");



At least I think that would work as it is possible to redirect stuff to COMx: in the shell in Windows...
