For nearly a decade, I have occassionally dabbled with serial programming in Windows, with my first exploit being documented in this thread: https://forums.parallax.com/discussion/133979/project-in-progress-new-serial-terminal-taking-suggestions/p1
Until recently, I had only found a couple of example programs of serial communication in MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes). The examples that were readily available, were indeed quite complex to say the least. In an effort to simplify some of my current endeavors, I have currently been looking for simpler solutions and examples, and today I came across this web page, with a simple example: https://ontrak.net/mfc.htm
I have not really begun to toy around with it just yet, but I thought some of you may be interested, for the purpose of sending serial commands to your various robots or projects.
Can it really be this simple?
I intend to find out.
