I am an intermediate programmer using C++. I currently have a program to control a stepper motor through a parallel port, but the laptop that I wish to execute my code on only has a serial port.
I am guessing you cannot just buy an adapter for serial->parallel and run the code that way?
I have heard that the handshaking lines of the serial port could be a good option, but have not figured out how to access them in the coding.
Thank you very much for your help,
