RS232 data to HP VEE

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 23, 1996
Hi,

A problem that I have thought about but not resolved.

We have a series of instruments which output data in a continuous stream in RS232 format.

We would like to be able to read this data into HP VEE and do some work on this data.

The data is output fairly slowly, 5 sets of data every second. Each set of data is about
30 bytes long.

As we cannot access the instrument as we would an ordinary instrument can we get the data
stored in a buffer and VEE to read the buffer at specific intervals?

We are using VEE 3.12 on a PC with Windows 3.1/3.11

Thanks in advance
