Visual Basic RS-232
This chapter discusses how Visual Basic can be used to access serial communication functions. Windows hides much of the complexity of serial communications and automatically puts any received characters in a receive buffer and characters sent into a transmission buffer. The receive buffer can be read by the program whenever it has time and the transmit buffer is emptied when it is free to send characters.
