How do you access the serial port in C? The anwser to these two questions is likely to be identical, save possibly for translating some include file code from C to D. Anything you can do in C, you can do in D. Arcane Jill

In linux the serial port is one file, i think in /dev/ directory, you write it
and read it like a usual file.
I think /dev/ttyS0 is com1  /dev/ttyS1 is com2 ...
But I haven't ever done it, so don't blame me if crashes your computer or
something. Search google for "/dev/ttyS0" or "linux serial port programming" or
look at http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/linux/programming/c/linux_pgcserial.html

How it is done in windows, I don't know and have'nt been able to figure out yet.

I've checked the website, and found this

#include <termios.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/signal.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

What about the header above ? should i just change the #include to import  
? or need to copy what to where ?

Regards

From nowhere. (Some of) Those includes are part of the POSIX interface and as of yet that has not been translated to D (to my knowledge). However, you have two avenues, and they both start with the C code as Jill said. Do your serial programming in C (one .c file for simplicity), and: a) compile it in C and link the object file into your D executable (easiest) b) - figure out what macros and function prototypes you use exactly, and write a .d "import" file with just what you need from the C header files - translate the C serial code into D I suggest a) as it is less work and less error prone, and more portable.
