Thanks for your response....
I found this script on aplawrence as well, but my first attempts failed
in making it work. I decided to take another look at it after your
note, and was successful getting Device::SerialPort to installed using a
different computer. I had to change :
#$PORT = "/dev/ttyD015"; # port to watch
$PORT = "/dev/ttyS0"; # port to watch
but I was able to make it execute.
I am trying to connect a automated urine analyzer to a serial report
with the hope of catching the results so that I can eventually
incorporate the data in a patient medical record. I intend to do the
same thing for a blood analyzer.
Now that I have Tony Lawrence's script executing I can take the next
step of connecting the urine analyzer to to the serial port to do some
Thanks for prompting me to look at the logger script again, I had given
