Right so what I'm trying to do is to take a text file i.e. in Notepad/MW from disk, encrypt it and transfer it to another computer where it will be received, decoded and stored on disk as a plain text file. I have to use the COM1 serial port to do this transfer. All code needs to be in asm86.

As my name suggests, I'm inexperienced with C++ programming...that means no experience whatsoever so I would appreciate any help given for example, websites which will help to develop my C++ skills to aid me in this particular topic or alternatively if you want to write me the code - please write down the reasons each line of code is written the way it is so I can learn from this.

Be in touch.

You forgot give us your email so we can send it there after we have written your program.

Thank you (if you weren't being sarcastic)
