Somebody(Logic or MS) is blocking my threads when I write to the port. I have put together a test app that if the serial port driver was interrupt driven and has a buffer should generate a pulsetrain with a period of 10mS - 11mS. It does not, I see the Writefile blocking until char is sent. I need to know why and how to fix this! My Windows image has all of latest drivers in it.

0 Replies and 1421 Views LogicLoader script to collect user input  1421  0 Started by  MarkH I am using LogicLoader (Lolo) version 2.4.0. I have searched the documentation, and have not found anywhere where it shows how to do the following: I would like to be able to present a short menu of choices to the user, and have the user input the selection. For example: 1) Run 'bootme' 2) Run 'exec' string 3) Boot image from NAND 4) Return to Lolo shell Enter choice: I would not expect the user to have to enter 'setvar selection 1'. Any one have any ideas Thank you. MarkH
