This page contains instructions for obtaining
CPGSCPWD.EXE, the self-extracting archive file containing the
sources to "C Programmer's Guide To Serial Communications,"
by Joe Campbell.
Before placing your order, it is only fair
that you understand exactly what you are buying. This code is
offered merely as a pedagogical accompaniment to my book, ostensibly
to save the reader typing effort. It is not intended as a commercial
product. I don't claim that the code is fit for any purpose,
I don't maintain a programming staff, and I do not support it
in any way. As a matter of fact, I haven't even looked at this
code in since 1997, so it probably won't build on today's compilers
without some savvy and tweaking on your part.
In other words, if you need a bullet-proof
package complete with technical support, please do not order
this code. If you do order it, then find that it doesn't
meet your expectations, don't bother to ask for a refund.
Feel free to send
email concerning your order, licensing, and so forth, but
please do not send technical questions or personal email.
The source code is provided in a self-extracting
archive file. Payment ($35) is made electronically via PayPal,
a secure online billing system used by millions of buyers on auction
sites, including Ebay and Yahoo. After providing electronic payment,
you'll be returned to this web site to obtain the password to
Here are the steps:
1. Download the source code CPGSPWD.EXE.
2. Click this button to pay by credit card. (Sorry, no other form of
payment is accepted.)
3. Read the installation
instructions carefully. These instructions give you the syntax
for using the password and command-line switches for building
the programming environment. Trust me...don't even think of trying
to use the code without the instructions (hint: the instructions
contain a simple step without which the MAKE files won't work.)
