Serial Port Data Logging

I recently needed an application to save data from a serial port to a text file. Although most terminal emulators like ProComm can handle this, it’s quite a lot of overhead for such a simple task. I came up with the following solution, which works for Windows only (b/c 90% of the interesting code is the low level serial interface, it would be totally different on Linux).

The code can be downloaded as either source code or a compiled EXE from the LogSer release page under the Software section. To compile the source for yourself, simply run cl LogSer.cpp to compile with MS’s Visual Studio command line compilers.
