programming to 'real' serial port in C++


what will I need to program to a serial port(not modem/ethernet) in C++? I'm really new at c++, and I'm doing a science fair project where I take the data coming in from a serial port connected thermometer, and output it to various places(MySql database, screen, text file, etc.). Thoughts?

Have never looked at C++ for this so far, but
maybe you can utilise
man tty_ioctl
man ioctl



Cheers,
Tink

for example:

http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/...ogramming.html
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...ing-HOWTO.html
http://www.easysw.com/~mike/serial/serial.html

The three manuals above are quite ok IMHO, I used them when I had to do serial port programming recently.
