in reply to (OT) How to read a 2-Wire RS-232-C line?

Assuming a 9 way plug, wire signal to pin 2 (rx), common to pin 5 (sig ground), set up your serial port correctly and hope for the best.

Oh, and if you must post hardware questions, mark them OT or ask them in the CB (this is waaay off topic - hopefully you will soon be using perl to talk to your device, but at the moment it looks very much like a hardware question) ;-)

Update:this might come in handy

[hippo]: :-D
[Eily]: you mean a dll where the SW was written in perl? That sounds unlikely
[muthusathish]: please help me regarding this
[hippo]: Easier just to go and look at the source, no?
[Eily]: mostly because perl isn't compiled in the usual sense of the meaning, you can't execute the opcodes directly, you need the perl engine
[muthusathish]: i dont have the environment too, but i need to get the logics so that i can re-wite
[Eily]: what makes you think your dll is "perl based" ?
[muthusathish]: i dont have source code too
[muthusathish]: it is used in VB 6 appln, while debugging is getting error
[hippo]: Somebody has. Ask the author.
