Paul and other responders, thanks. Think I'ma bit clearer how to do it now.

q1) My com device is an energy monitor that sends a block of xml data, 1000  
bytes or so, every 6 secs. Guess this means I might be better 'using getbuf  
or whatever it's called in synaser, rather than single char at a time? Any  
examples of using this welcome.

q2) does synaser work on win98/me?

Regards John
