I read from serial port. When the equipment was
available for testing, we measured the output to
be a few thowsand bytes/second. The program is
supposed to run in Windows computers at physicians
offices (and their only requirement is to be able
to run windows and have a serial port). Errors of
1 byte per second would be acceptable, even if they

I have no equipment specs and, right now, no
equipment to test. (Yes, I know this is crazy.) So,
I need to know what kind of problems I may expect,
so I'm able to deal with them.
