to process data from 4 serial ports (Read 12948 times)
to process data from 4 serial ports on: April 17, 2008, 06:34:08 PM
   I am new to the eltima forum. I have a pcmcia card with 4 rs232 ports and have devices (GPS receivers) connected to each of these ports.
   The data coming out from the receivers are different packets of varying lengths. Can anyone give suggestions to how one can write C/C++ code to collect data from all ports at the same (fast enough i mean) without missing out on data on any of the ports.
   the functionality would be same as mutiple rs232 port software from eltima but i do not want to log the data, instead process it real time.
