Unhappy Reading COM Port Data


People,

I am tring to access my COM port through C. I have a piece of hardware connected to the port that dumps 32 characters on to the port at a time. I want to read this data.
Currently instead of the hardware I am using my mouse which is connected on COM1.
Please suggest.....

-Akshar

There's an input library here called libgii that may be useful:

I used it once with a com port remote control:
