> 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.

If each line of xml has a terminator (say, crlf), you can use RecvTerminated
to read line by line.
Or, you can use RecvBufferEx, RecvBufferString, RecvPacket.
All methods are documented in synaser source.

> q2) does synaser work on win98/me?

No idea. I works under xp.
