Data acquisition from a device through serial port in linux


I have to read and write data frames from & to an electronic device.I am using C for establishing serial port communication with the device.
I have successfully implemented writing to the device.I sent data using this
code patch


fd = open(COMPORT,O_RDWR | O_NOCTTY | O_NDELAY);
fcntl(fd,F_SETFL,0);
tcgetattr(fd,&options);
cfsetospeed(&option,B9600);
cfsetispeed(&option,B9600);
options.c_cflag |= ( CLOCAL | CREAD );
options.c_cflag &= PARENB;
options.c_cflag &= ~PARODD;
options.c_cflag &= ~CSTOP;
options.c_cflag &= ~CSIZE;
options.c_cflag &= ~CRTSCTS;
options.c_cflag |= CS8;
options.c_oflag &= ~OPOST;
options.c_cc[VMIN]=1;
options.c_cc[VTIME]=0;
tcsetattr(fd,TCSANOW,&options);
tcflush(fd,TCIOFLUSH);
for(i=0;i<=7;i++)
n = write(fd,&buff1[i],2);
/*
for(i=0;i<=7;i++)
n = read(fd,&buff3[i],1);
*/
tcdrain(fd);
close(fd);
return 0;
}
when i remove comments and execute read portion of the patch it doesnot read the data comming from the device
Now i am trying to read from the serial port but no success please help me

I suspect you are attempting to read the data before it is ready to be received. You need to wait until there are characters in the UART receive buffer first. This program might provide some hints.

BTW the program will execute way faster then the UART transmits.
