[REBOL] Using serial port on iPaq 3670

From: dlhawley:home at: 22-Oct-2001 13:30

I have an iPaq which I'm hoping to use to debug some serial communications problems we're running into in the field. Does the ipaq (arm) rebol core support opening the built in serial port? probe system/ports/serial -> [com1 com2] so I assume that there is at least some level of support. However attempts to do open serial://port1 (or 2) gives me an access error cannot open com1 (or 2). Is com1 the correct name for the built in serial port? For those who haven't used serial ports under rebol, system/ports/serial has to be set to the correct port names since the internal open uses them to request the service from to OS. However rebol uses portN in an attempt to be os transparent to names. -- David L. Hawley D.L. Hawley and Associates 1.503.274.2242 Software Engineer [David--L--Hawley--computer--org]
