A friend and I are trying to figure out how to interface C++ 2008 with COM ports for our robotics team. Is there a simple "template" we could go by, or is it different for every device? Could someone provide an example of how to transfer data to COM ports via C++?
For example: The robot operates off of GPS, which is connected to the computer system via the "ninth" COM port at 19200 baud. How can we transfer information to and from the GPS device? If you need more information, let me know.
Thanks for any help!
