Just to add a thought, if one can make an http client to send a "post" request to a web server like apache, then FB might could be used to as a cgi application to capture the data in the "post" and store it on the computer.

The code now works using full paths like below. Maybe a requirement when using FBIde?

#include "C:/Program Files/FreeBASIC/chisock/chisock.bi"
#libpath "C:/Program Files/FreeBASIC/chisock/bin/win32"

I've installed the latest version of FB for windows. I'm using FBIde version 0.4.6 to do a quick run of the code. I get the below error.

Compiler output:
C:\PROGRA~1\FREEBA~1\bin\win32\ld.exe: cannot find -lchisock

I'm new to this and get a syntax error at "#pragma once" when I run the posted code. Is this something to do with chisock files?

Does this code work on XP machines? It works on my XP laptop, but I already have user level access to the hardware enabled on the laptop using userport.

You might want to make a simple test program to see what is being sent out the serial port. For serial port testing I connect the tx line on the serial port to the rx line on the serial port to loop back what is being sent before actually connecting to the gizmo. It has been my experience that 10ms ...

Using the open command for the com port works quite well with fb. Below is some test code that I made for using with a serial servo conroller. Now that I have the controller, I see the code needs to be improved. This might be of interest if one wants to control the servos using a web interface. Bott...

Asthe thread has gone a lot of places, you might need to restate what you want to do, and what you have been successful at doing so far. Have you actually gained user level access to the parallel port and been able to change a data pin from low to high as measured with a volt meter?

CGI application for web servo control

Below is an update on my tinkering with freebasic making a cgi application for use with the Linxmotion ssc-32 servo controller for control of servos over the web. I compiled it and put in the apache cgi-bin folder. I currently don't have an ssc-32 to test with, so I have to connect the serial port t...
