    Question HSERIN for variable length string

    Any idea how to read string with variable length? In HSERIN command, I'm not sure how I can allocate the variables since the length of data can change eg.

    AB
    CDEF
    GHI
    JKLMNO

    Your help is much appreciated.

    If you don't have a constant terminator, or your data is not ASCII, you will probably just have to set a timeout that is long enough to cover receiving the longest possible string.
