Thank u very much for reply.
I remember in year 1983 I had developed two small softwares in (foxpro or foxbase) and in GWBASIC for 'RS232' communication port to measure Gold. I had used fopen()(FoxPro) and Open (GWBASIC) function/statement in those softwares. Unfortunately I lost those softwares and now I am unable to found old version of FoxPro also. The software which i am going to prepare;has to get run on old PC '586'. I think LowLevel function fopen() would be more fast than MSComm ActiveX Control on PC 80586.
When I got help (in VFP5) for fopen() the following contents appeared:-
**********************************************
Opens a file or communication port for use with low-level file functions.**********************************************
Sir! Kindly help me how can I solve this problem.
