Description Opens a port for serial communication.
int comopen(unsigned int port);
unsigned int port
port specifies which serial communications port is to be opened. See the table below for details.

The baudrate, the number of data bits, the parity mode, the number of stopbits and the handshaking modes, can all be selected via a systemsetting() call. comopen() uses the current settings when opening a communications port.

The default settings of the handheld terminal are:

Baudrate 9600 (115K2 for the OPH100x)
Parity None
Databits 8
Stopbits 1
Hardware handshaking No
Software handshaking No
0 The port was opened normally.
-1 The port number was invalid.
-3 The port could not be opened, because the cradle did not respond (PHL1700, OPL97xx and DCL153x when opening COM2)
<-10 The OPL9724 or OPL9712 could not establish a connection.
Remarks When a comport is opened the power consumption may increase, so use the comclose() function when serial communication is no longer needed.

When you have opened a communication port with comopen(), and then you open a second communication port with comopen() the first port is closed automatically.

The functions getcom() and putcom(), will use the port opened by comopen().

Note: Only the PHL1700 has a difference between COM1 and COM2. The rest of the terminals do support COM1 and COM2, but there is no difference between them.

#include "lib.h"
#include <stdio.h>
void main( void )
    int ch;
    comopen( COM2 );    // Open the COM port for the cradle
    while( 1 )
        if( (ch = getcom( 0 )) != -1)
            putchar( ch );
            putcom( ch );
        if( (ch = getchar()) != EOF)
            putchar( ch );
            putcom( ch );
        idle();    // Very important to lower the power consumption
