Good Day all NG.

I have a problem that I don't succeed to resolve. How I can use RS-232 with
PB 9.0 professional?
I don't find functions or libraries for the access to the port.

Many thanks, bye bye

If PB does not have it I'm sure there are tons of objects that will support
the RS-232 requirement that PB can access. Years ago I need to write some
code with lat/long and distance and found a vb object that was perfect.

You might want to look at declaring and using the external functions
CreateFile/ReadFile/etc. from the win32 API:

The CreateFile function creates or opens the following objects and
returns a handle that can be used to access the object: files pipes
mailslots *COMMUNICATIONS RESOURCES* disk devices (Windows NT
only) consoles directories (open only)
...

Look at the API List on http://www.yqcomputer.com/

good luck.
