Text over Com Port

Text over Com Port

(OP)
Hey,

Can anyone tell me how to send text by a Serial cable (Com Port) between two PC's running QBASIC 7.1? I was also thinking of using two paired wireless serial interfaces.Would this make a difference?

Many Thanks,

ironclaw

RE: Text over Com Port

You should be able to run a simple terminal program on both ends. There are examples of these programs on lots of sites.

The problem you may run into on newer pc's is the com port
and interrupt values. It might be easier to use something
like PowerBasic Console Compiler that will get by those
problems.
