Short:     Serial I/O functions that time-out. Source included.
Author:    Jim Steichen (jimbot()frontiernet.net)
Uploader:  Jim Steichen (jimbot()frontiernet.net)
Type:      dev/src
Version:   2.0
Requires:  C-Compiler of some sort.

This is a collection of functions that control the
Amiga Serial device fully.  They differ from most
other functions in that they time-out if there is
no response from the PC that's connected at the
other end of the serial cable.

The object file (TimedSerialPPC.o) was produced by 
gcc V2.95 (see enclosed MakeFile) on an AmigaOne under OS4.0.

The object file (TimedSerial.o) was produced by 
SAS-C V6.58 (see enclosed SMakeFile) on an A4000T under OS3.9.
See the enclosed AmigaGuide file for documentation
on how the functions work!

    28-Oct-2004 - Added AmigaOS4 & gcc support.
    25-Dec-2002 - Added a boolean flag to each function that
                  uses the timer in order to control whether
                  the timer uses microseconds or seconds.
                  Also modified the TranslateErrorNumber
                  function to return a string with incorrect
                  error number values (V2.0).

    28-Sep-2000 - Added the serName parameter to the OpenSerial()
                  function (V1.1). 

    30-Dec-1998 - Added GetErrNum() & GetSerialStatus() (V1.0)

    06-Nov-1996 - Created.
