'{OT] simple comms program'
1999\09\25@041500 by Quentin

I need a simple comms proggy with which I can send commands to my PIC
via RS232 (Yeah, I got it licked :) ).
All I find is comms programs that can do just about anything but being
simple.
All I want to do is to type characters and send it. Or send a text file
of characters.
Don't care if it's Dos or Windoze. As long as it talks directly to my
comm port.

Thanks
Quentin

How?
I've used Terminal that came with Win3.1 sometime ago, but don't have it
anymore.
I can't get Hyperterminal to work the way I want it.
How do you make hyperterminal to be a dumb terminal?

Quentin, do you have hyperterminal on your system right now?

You just set the settings to redirect everything to com1 or 2.
I don't see what the problem is! I use it all the time for rs485
communication between a pic and my PC.
(of course I use a 485 convertor that sets the driver automatic)

Hyperterminal works but can be somewhat obtuse.  You want
to select the "direct to com1" (or com2) option instead of
a modem. For a more straightforward "dumb terminal", you
might try kermit, go to http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/
Kermit95, the Win32 version, costs actual money, but
MS-Kermit, which is the free DOS version, works absolutely
fine, albeit in a DOS window.

Thanks guys, I got Hyperterminal to work after a few swear words to BG
and co.

Next question: How can I send data as numbers and not ASCII?

Hmm, guess I beter dust of my Qbasic and write something.

Thanks
Quentin

Try this. With NumLock on, press and hold Alt, type the numbers
on the number pad of your keyboard, then release Alt. For instance
Alt 6 5 should give you a capital 'A' This works for many combinations,
but not all (Alt 0 comes to mind).

There is also http://www.crystalfontz.com/products/wintest which
is a send only program that will send any character. I'll give you
the source if you want.

What are you writing in ?


in C something like this would quite happily write the data in any form.

unsigned char data[] = {
       0xFF, 0x8E, 0x01, 0xFF,  0xCE, 0x10, 0x00, 0x6F,
       0x35, 0x18, 0xCE, 0x10,  0x3F, 0x86, 0x07, 0x8D,
       0x40, 0x18, 0xCE, 0xB6,  0x00, 0x86, 0x19, 0x8D
};
...
open(com1, O_BINARY|O_RDWR,S_IWUSR);
...
write(com1, &data, sizeof(&data));
...

Hello Quentin,

 What do you think of :

   ECHO {whatever} >COMx
and
   COPY {any file} COMx

Just set up your Com-port with the MODE command first.

Greetz,
 Rudy Wieser

Hi,

I am not sure Rudy's suggestion work, because of this case DOS assumes a
lot of particular state of handshake lines. I personally would suggest
LAPTALK.COM. It is free, and available from http://www.dunfield.com

Regards,
Imre

I have tried to do this without success to copy Orcad (Dos) files to my
plotter in a Dos window on machines running Win95 and WinNT. The programs
ask me to load a driver disk. I have to use an old 386 laptop I have,
running Dos 5.0, which does what I ask without question. Is it possible to
copy files directly to the printer port (in my case) without windows
requiring a device driver for the particular plotter? A driver was not
needed, since Orcad already produced the proper format.

TIA  :-)  Andy Morris

Let me invite you to the dos-orcad group at egroups.com

Yes, you can do exactly what you want, try "copy com1:file.ext"

You should be able to work it under win98, I do.
