comport is an external which can handle the serial interfaces
- Hints for ComportUsage
comport is hosted in the pure-data Subversion repository:
Version now in CVS is 1.0RC1
in cvs only
To use just put the comport.dll in a path pd knows about or specify the path to it on the command line with the -path option.
It is tested on Linux and NT using the flock of bird device !
Linux: works fine, but hardware handshake is not tested. Create an object named comport or specify a commandline option "-lib comport" and it should load. For testing open the test pd-file testcomport.pd, it also shows tested
WINDOWS: I compiled it with VisualC?++ 6.0 using the makefile and nmake
- Please help:
Since I am no Wndws-Guru: There is in the MS-Help mentioned that using this kind of ReadFile(...) function could block. Since I set the timeouts to zero it works ok on my machines. I have tried the Eventhandler-Wait-Stuff but didnt succeed with that.
