Hi all!

I haven't had much C or C++ programming experience; just wondering if
anyone's had any success writing programs to control serial IO cards
(the ones that you can use to control other electronics etc...)

What is a good card to use, and where do I find info to program for it?

The cards I've looked at so far only include Qbasic listings...

I want to run under Linux.

This is a personal project.

Thanks in advance...

If cars had advanced at the same rate as Micr0$oft technology, they'd be 
flying by now.
But who wants a car that crashes 8 times a day?
