Import Data From External Device

Posted 24 June 2013 - 01:20 PM

Hello all!

First time poster so don't shoot me for posting in the wrong place!

As stated I'm trying to get a start on my project but can't for the life of me get pointed in the right direction. And hopefully that's were you all come in.

I'm trying to build a simple app that will take text from a device that is connected via RS32 (or serial) and import it to a screen which separates each entry into tables.
It's to run on a Linux box.

My thought is to gather the text from the COM port and put it into a CSV file where the said app will update based on the CSV.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

This really depends on what is on the other end of the "RS32 DB9 9 PIN" connection.

It's a building automation controller. Basically you can interface with it through hyper terminal. You can send commands and it prints out reports or config settings.
