HI,WHILE DOING OUR FINAL YEAR PROJECT WE FAILED IN SYNCHRONIZING THE READING AND WRITING OPERATION CONCUENTLY ON RS-232 SERIAL PORT AS WE ARE IN NEED TO DO BOTH THE WRITING AND THE READING OPERATION SIMULTANEUSLY,PLZZ ANY BODY INTERSTED HELP US OR POST THE CODES MY EMAIL ADRESS firstname.lastname@example.org THANKS FOR YOUR HELP
hi ,thanks henry we were trying to use the rs-232 serial port to accept and send data but we have to bothe the accepting(reading) and sending(writing) to occur simultaneausly,the port has not to be idle while writing or reading doing one thing but has to do both simultaneusly i think u get my idea thanks
Actually, I do not. My question was... are you trying to prevent simultaneous read and write by the use of synchronization, or trying to "loosen" synchronization to allow a protocol that supports simulateous transfers to work. These are two distinct and different questions.
And BTW, it has been over a decade since I program drivers for the RS-232 port, so take this with a grain of salt. I am also making an assumption on your question for this answer. The assumption is that you are trying to "loosen" your synchronization.
Raw RS-232 does not allow simultaneous transfers in both directions at the same time. To do that you have to simulate it with a protocol -- Such as IP, SNA, BiSync, etc. And even then it is a simulated. The protocol is interlacing the transfers.
Adding threads doesn't fix this. When using threads, you need to work within the restrictions of the protocol that you are using.
Hope this helps, Henry

HI HENRY,THAAKS AGAIN FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE NOW I THINK YOU GET MY IDEA , WHAT WE ARE INTENDING TO DO IS THAT ACESSING THE RS_232 PORT TO SEND FILE AND AND TEXT MESSAGE WIRELESSLY USING ANTENNA TO ANOTHER PC SO IN DOING SO,THE PERSON IN CHARGE WHILE SENDING DATA OR TEXT MESSAGE HAS NOT TO WAIT LONG BY SENDING ONLY HE HAS TO ACCEPT THE DATA ALSO,THOUGH THE CONCEPT IS DIFFERENT IT IS LIKE APPLICATIONS IN MESSANGERS..LIKE YAHOO, SKYPE ETC THE PERSON DO ALL THINGS AT THE SAME TIME. SO IF THREAD CANNOT ALLOW AS TO DO SO HOW CAN WE DO SO BY USING SOME OTHE METHODS PLZ TRY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM AGAIN THANKS email@example.com
