I want a program on my PC to be able to talk to a STOS program running in Steem. It is entirely possible my problem is with STOS, not Steem, so I've also cross-posted to that forum here
I've configured my Steem serial port to be a file on my PC. I can write to this file in STOS by printing text to the AUX port. But I cant seem to read from this file. I'm not even sure if or how that should work. My program just waits & never receives any data from the port. Even if I write to the file using a text editor on my PC, then save and close the file, nothing happens in my STOS program.
So I guess my questions are - has anyone ever got 2-way communication happening over the serial port in Steem, using a file? Or perhaps directly between Steem's serial port & your PC's serial port?
And can anyone suggest a better way of sending & receiving data to a program running in Steem?
Oh any by the way - Mr Segal
if you are reading this - the ports settings window in v 3.9 is a little messed up - if you select anything except 'none' for the Parallel / Serial / Special Adapter ports, the container panel isn't big enough to show the child controls that appear. v3.7 seems fine, but has less UI elements.
