SeriCon is a universal PC interface program to your target hardware. It receives data from the target to show not only texts but also numbers and graphics, and sends it mouse clicks as well as texts and numbers. SeriCon also can be used to utilize the control-bits in a serial port to measure and generate pulses. Important features are:
SeriCon stops the normal character mode when it receives three 0 bytes, and turns into the "function" mode. Let your target send SeriCon, a "function type" byte and the "arguments" data. Then SeriCon converts them into texts and graphics, like C printf and Win32 drawing functions.
Not only characters but also 8/16/32-bits binary numbers can be sent easily by typing, with automation (variable period and number of times). Mouse clicks on the graphics also can be sent to the target with the signal byte defined by it.
To help you program the target('s MCU or microcontroller) to send/receive such forms of data, a library and example codes with the source files are included in the package.
CTS, DSR and RLSD (also called DCD), which have been used by other programs just to control the serial communication, now can be used to read and display some signals from your hardware. For each bit (pin), the present level(high or low), the count of level changes (pulse), and the level durations with linear or exponential transformations, can be displayed.
RTS and DTR are also utilized to send static or dynamic signals with variable specifications (periods, level durations, and numbers of cycles) to your hardware, including a DC or stepper motor.
A file (sound file or program, for example) can be specified for an 'action' to be excuted when an 'event' occurs. You can define an event to be a situation where an input pulse count reachs a specified value or where receives a specified character.
