[REBOL] Accessing serial port under Windows

From: geza67:freestart:hu at: 21-Mar-2001 15:43

Hello to All REBOLers ! I am stuck with a problem accessing the serial port COM1 under Windows with REBOL/View (I would like to send modem AT commands and receive the resulting strings) . Although system/ports/serial lists com1 and com2 as valid, if I query with port? several possible variations of port reference syntax (e.g. port://serial1, serial://port1, serial://com1) I get a 'false answer. My question is, how to reference the serial ports. ... With Unix or derivatives it would be SOOO easy, like %dev/serX ... but unfortunately Windows lacks such virtual device driver files. Thank you for your kind help! Geza Lakner MD
