Serial ports communication on Windows (Scilab 5.3+)

slCheck          — Check availability of a COM port.
slClose          — Closes a COM port.
slConfig         — Configure a COM port
slCount          — Counts the available bytes in receive buffer.
slFlush          — Flushes the receive buffer and resets the OV flag.
slInit           — Initializes some internal objects.
slLoad           — Loads the library and links functions.
slMount          — Creates a handle to a COM port.
slOpen           — Opens a COM port.
slReadArray      — Reads up to 32 bytes of data from the buffer.
slReadArrayN     — Read an arbitrary amount of data from the buffer.
slReadByte       — Reads a byte from the receive buffer.
slSendArray      — Sends an array to the COM port.
slSendByte       — Sends a byte to the COM port.
slSendPacket     — Sends a DLE STX DATA DLE DLE ETX packet
slSetPacketChar  — Allows configuration of the special character byte
slSetPacketEnd   — Allows configuration of the 2 packet end bytes
slSetPacketStart — Allows configuration of the 2 packet start bytes
slUMount         — Deletes the handle and frees internal objects.
slUnload         — Unload the library
slVersion        — Returns the version of the library

Tested and supported builts/platforms:

 - Scilab 5.3.0-BETA4 (32 bit)
 - Scilab 5.3.0 (32 & 64 bit)
 - Windows XP Pro and Home (SP3, 32Bit)
 - Windows 7 (32 & 64 Bit)


If you need serial ports in Scilab 5+, give it a try.
If it doesn't work:

- Drop me a note and I'll see what I can do.
- Source code is included. Use it ;-)

Some serial-to-USB-host bridges (for example, CP210x) provide speeds higher than 115200 up

to 921600 bps. Is it feasible, or at least sensibly, to implement extra (for example, 
230400, 460800, 921600) baud rates?
Comment from Thaufeek Ahmed -- August 27, 2014, 02:30:06 PM    
I am not able to open the serial port. I have installed the serial port tool box, but i 
keep getting errors like

-->slConfig(22,9600,8,0,1);
-->slConfig(22,9600);
 !--error 4 
Undefined variable: nBits
at line       2 of function slConfig called by :  
slConfig(22,9600);


-->com = openserial(22,"921600,n,8,1");
 !--error 999 
TCL_EvalStr,  at line 1
	couldn't open "COM22:": no such file or directory
    while executing
"open COM22: r+"
    invoked from within
"set porthandle [open COM22: r+]"
at line      17 of function openserial called by :  
com = openserial(22,"921600,n,8,1");



->sp = serialport(COM22, '9600,n,8,1');
                  !--error 4 
Undefined variable: COM22


I have shown 3 different commands that tried to open the serial port, but one works... 
please help me to open the serial port and receive the serial data from arduino

Pleace notice, that the current version is 0.7, not 0.4
(though it probably deserves a 1.1 now ;-)

slConfig() needs 4 parameters, like in your first call above.
It will fail (2nd line of your code) if you call it with less parameters.

I am sorry, I don't know what "openserial()" or
"serialport()" are. These are not part of this library.

Also: None of the SiSeLi functions use strings as arguments.

Are you sure, that you are posting at the right place?

SiSeLi comes with a "quite detailed" (TM) documentation,
including some code examples and a walkthrough.

If you still need help, just ask!

I assume that you are using the newest version of the library (V0.7).
The following steps will not work with older releases.


MINIMAL STEPS TO OPEN A PORT:

1) load the lib
exec("slLoadLib.sci")

2) get a port handle
port1 = slMount()

3) configure the port referenced by handle "port1"
ret = slConfig( port1, 9600, 8, 0, 1 )

4) open COM port 22 on handle "port1"
ret = slOpen( port1, 22 )
