Hi everyone, I am pretty new to C++ Programming... but am currently working on a project where I need to try and get an old fortrans program working again... I have the executable which can start up and run through initialization, but once I try to run the simulation it freezes up due to the lack of a timer interrupt.
I am basically hoping to use C++ as a 'wrapper' to create a timer interrupt and timing system that can be ported into the old program... has anyone done this?
I am thinking of using the COMM ports to transfer data between the C++ and the Fortrans programs.
I have found some code to be able to create and open the COMM1 port but am unable to find anything that refers to sending a timer interrupt through a COMM port. (and yes I have used google and various forum search engines)
any help would be greatly appreciated!
