What output do you get if you type this command into a cmd window?: mode com1

    Hi,

    I get the following:

    C:\Users\pmu>mode com1 Illegal device name - COM1 C:\Users\pmu>
    -------------------------------------------------------------- Perspectum cognitio aeterna --------------------------------------------------------------

      That suggests your machine simply does not have serial ports configured.

      To verify, run msinfo32.exe; click Components->Ports->Serial.

      In the context of this thread, the usability of Win32::SerialPort under 32 & 64 bit Perls is telling you nothing useful.

[stevieb]: I don't know what you mean. I write the code in C/C++ that accesses the ICs per the datasheet, wrap it for Perl, then use them. My code ensures that the functions/methods from Perl do the right thing for the chips/sensors etc
[stevieb]: At least that's what I'm working on right now. I've also been updating my automated test software Test::BrewBuild so it handles this work properly. It's not really easy meshing high level languages with low-level hardware :)
[stevieb]: this link is probably better for an overview of my test software
