Hi guys, if anyone can help here it would be great.

I'm running Windows XP SP3.

I have at the moment a micro-controller connected to my serial port. Using the micro-controller I can get temperature data and send display it in a terminal. I can program the micro-controller in C.

What I want to do is take those values and insert them to a text file. How do I go about designing this? Is it possible to write code on a micro-controller to tell it to write to a text file on the PC? Or do I need to write a program on the PC that would pole the micro-controller at certain times for this information?

Any help would be great.

The PC will have to write the data to the file system because it can't be done from something connected to a serial port.
