'[EE]:PDA be a DOS terminal, like Hyperterminal?'

Can a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) like the Palm m100, be a terminal for a serial
device? Or should I ask, can any of the PDAs
run software like Hyperterminal or other DOS terminal software for an RS232 serial port?

I would like to have an input/output for my serial device, and thought that something like a Palm would be convenient.

Thanks

John

  Not sure about going about creating a serial program for Palm but the API does support serial
connection. Try to look at "palmgear" before writing one.

they can, I've done it, and yes there is software already written, some
of it free.

shouldn't this be OT?

I use pocketdos on my Ipaq and run procomm, pcplus, bitcom, and several
that I wrote myself using quick basic. It can handle just about any dos
program you want to use.

Forgot to mention, you can get nsbasic and write your own programs in basic
for any of the palm handhelds and there is also a version for ce devices.
Really great program.

Thanks for the responce from the piclist subscribers. Sorry for the [EE], as
I should have selected [OT]. Hey, your lucky I remembered to select even the
[EE] since I usually forget to select anything.

I found something that works well but now the letters are so small I can't
see them. Is there a way to change the fonts on these Palms. I want big
numbers!

I'd say see it as still reasonable under EE at this stage.
It relates to an electronic device and whather it has certain capabilities
and how they can be accessed. Such a discussion is liabl;e to have people
suggest available serial interface methods, hardware that can interface
which may well lead to neat new applications. If one person realises that a
PIC can EASILY tal;k to Palm and other PDA,s that their touch screen
intercace and LCD display capability are thereby available and that it might
be the ideal interface for their new project then the thread has done well.

absolutely,
i have a free ftp client and a free telnet client installed on mine.
it gets really easy when you instal a java VM and start writing your own serial apps via java.

I for one didn't have a problem with this being EE.  It could be relevant
to PIC development for those who have a PDA (although I don't).

I use a "cheap" Casio PVS460 as a RS232 interface for my PIC - datalogger.
At the moment, I have found two free Terminal applications for these Casio
models (OWBTerm  - PVTerminal) at:
http://www.pocket-viewer.com/software.htm   (see "Communications").

The limit is that anyone of the two cannot save the data on the screen...
(but the Casio SDK are free, so it isn't impossible to do a customized
serial program ).

If you use Palm and a "data download" is your focus, an useful program is
"SerialGo" at:  http://www.vista-software.com/serialgo.htm

good luck
Marco

Marco,
Okay, I have a "cheap" Casio PV-S400Plus (I like it better than my Palm, and
at 1/3 the price!). I have tried the OWBterm, because I can get into the
code, but I am having trouble with it because the serial open command gives
an error message "Wrong Parameters" at run time. Have you had this problem?

Thanks
John

John,
sorry if I repy only now, but I had not seen the mail...

Well,  I observe that your model is different from european models (mine is
PVS460), so I 'm not absolutely sure that the OWBTerm
works fine on your PV (see the release notes on the OWBasic site:
http://pandora.inf.uni-jena.de/p/e/noo/owbasic/basic.html  ).
Obviously, you must sure that OWBasic is installed correctly before starting
OWBTerm.

However,  if you are sure that the serial port on PV-S400 is working
correctly, you can extract from OWBTerm only one line of code and try to
write a simple minimal "Term" program (for example, changing the default
speed value):

srlopen 96,8,0,1,2

- that is 9600 baud / *data bits / no parity / 1 stop bit / Hardware RS/CS
(as you can read on OWBasic Help).
I think that 9600 baud is the default serial speed on PV, so if you start
with this value no error wouldn't have to happen.

Then, you can execute this file and try to send some characters from PC to
the PV (Hyperterminal or, better, Tera Term pro) with the same settings.

As I said in the mail, another free Terminal ( it works fien, better than
OWBTerm but hasn't source code..) is PVTerminal:
http://www.hometeam.de/en/projekte/pvterminal/

good luck
Marco
