This demonstrates BAUDRATE, a SubProgram for QuickBASIC v3.0 that allows you
to get or change the baud rate for COM1 or COM2, without dropping the DTR.
Normally it is necessary to CLOSE, then OPEN the com port, which drops the DTR.
NB: BAUDRATE bypasses DOS and BIOS! COM1 and COM2 MUST be configured in
your PC-compatible in a standard way (ie, IO PORTS 3F8h - 3FFh for COM1, and
IO PORTS 2F8h - 2FFh for COM2). Don't worry - the chances are you're okay!
The archive QBBAUD.ARC contains:
