Re: language selection help

There is plenty of info on communicating with a PC.
There are a couple of books in the EBOOK section you might want to look at "Programming the Parallel Port" and "Serial Port Complete".
As for the language, that depends ALOT on what you want to do. If all you want to do is program this one thing and have it run under windows perhaps you should lear VB, but if you want to be able to program other things as well or on other platforms you should choose a language that can do all the things that you want.
Me, I like C, as you can use it anywhere and for anything, but you might like to use a simpler and easier to use language like VB.
