I/O using hyperterminal instead of Dynamic C's stdio


I am wondering how to do I/O using hyper terminal instead of dynamic C’s stdio. What is the COM port setting like bit rate, stop bits, flow control, hardware control, etc.

I need to demonstrate my project in class, and my code needs the user to enter the device’s IP and ssid. It may need to install the device’s usb driver. But it doesn’t make sense for the demo (user) computer to install dynamic C to run the code.

I believe the default settings in hyperterminal are: 2400 bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and hardware flow control. But you can use a different data rate if you want. You just have to make sure that the settings on both sides match.

I haven’t tried it, but my RCM4100 dev kit came with a ribbon cable to DB9 connector that attaches to J4 on the prototyping board, and serial ports C and D are there on J4. Look at RS232.LIB and the sample programs in …\Samples\SERIAL to see how to set data rate and send & receive characters from the Rabbit side…
