Afer having some issues with serialport-0.6 working in my Win2K/Ruby
1.8.2 environment I installed Win32Serial. I have checked out the basic
docs and worked with some sample code. What I am looking to do is use
Win32Serial to sit on a serial port that's already in use and passively
monitor it. I know that if a serial port is in use certain applications
cannot access it. Has anyone already ventured in this area using the
Win32Serial library? Just wondering if it is impractical to try to have
it passively monitor an active connection...
