Files for a simple program using the Free Pascal compiler and SynaSer to communicate with a serial device.

Are you looking for a simple way to see a program communicate with a serial device on your system? These files give you that opportunity without the need to download and install the entire Free Pascal compiler or the SynaSer library. The program (DlpTempG) is written to communicate with the DLP-TEMP-G 3-Channel Data/Temperature Acquisition Board (details here).

If you don't have the DLP-TEMP-G device there is another program (DlpTempGSim) that can be used to simulate it for testing.

If the DLP-TEMP-G device doesn't appear (as ttyUSB-) on Linux:
1) Run the dmesg command in a terminal after inserting the DLP-TEMP-G device and verify the Braille TTY (brltty) package is interfering
2) If you aren't using a braille device then remove the brltty package
3) Remove and reinsert the DLP-TEMP-G device
