im wanting to make a simple c app to read in values from the com port on my pc. Now i should be able to use inportb function, but this does not appear to be included in vc++ 2005 (i did a search through the vc header files and nothing came up). any one have any other ideas on how i can do what i want?

inportb is a non-standard function from the days of DOS. VC++ hasn't targeted DOS in a long time.

To read the com port in windows, read the MSDN entry on CreateFile
