hi everyone,

i am a beginner of pascal language. nowadays, i am learning to deal
withserialport.
i found some examples, such as openingport, writing toport:

eg.
//SerSetParams(MySerialHandle, 9600,8,EvenParity,1,[]);
//SerWrite(MySerialHandle, bffr,2);

my question is why the 'MySerialHandle' argument appears in these
command.
what is the purpose of this argument?

MySerialHandle is the unique "handle" returned from the open for theserialdevice. Remember, you can have more than oneserialdevice, so
there has to be a way to distinguish them. The "handle" is just the
way the code distinguishes between openedserialdevices.

thank Lew, your explanation is very clear.

thanks again :)
