ComHelp is a useful utility program to both READ and WRITE
the Communication parameters in your PC's COM1
and/or COM2 ports. It is better than using the DOS
"Mode" command because it can read the settings from
your port's Uart as well.
-user-friendly MENU SYSTEM for Communication
-lets you set the Uart speeds to unusual
speeds for testing limits of software or hardware
-provides a "TOOLBOX" for solving your PC
Communication problems. It can:
* check if and how your serial card/internal
modem is installed
* provide exhaustive UART tests via
internal and external loopbacks,
helping you to test even your EIA
* provides indepth HELP screens to
save time in understanding each bit
in the UART registers.
* provides a way to use ComHelp by
bypassing the Main Menu and Advertising.
