If you use Hyperterm or similar program , this free windows program can improve
the serial communication interaction for your PIC projects. Simple identifier characters
locate your data to specific boxes for display...........

seroutXXX "_A GENERATOR STARTING IN 22 MINUTES _"
pause etc.........
seroutXXX "_A GENERATOR STARTING IN 21 MINUTES _"
---------
seroutXXX "_A GENERATOR STARTING NOW, press to cancel _"

----will update the box on the MAIN PAGE with the latest data received,

GENERATOR STARTING NOW, press to cancel

seroutXXX "_T MONDAY 6/26/2008 10:24:59 _"
will place MONDAY 6/26/2008 10:24:59 in the time box on DATA PAGE.

With your PIC circuit set up to receive, the program can send back data to interact with your project including setting a RTC real-time-clock, or sending 100 characters of text to store on PIC.

The interface may look a little dated but is very functional for serial PIC to PC interaction.
The VB.Net program can be downloaded from........

Inexpensive customization of the interface is available such as page layout or main lable
" ACME MACHINE CONTROLLER... 800-555-1234 " etc.
