Summary
  • The IBM and it compatibles support two serial ports, COM1 and COM2, in a wide variety of configurations. Four basic functions are provided, data-in, data-out, set configuration, and read status. What the IBM PC does not handle, however, is accepting more than one character when the disk is seeking. If that happens the PC gets lost. The author presents some changes of the device driver to fix the disk-I-O problem and discusses design rules and implementation pitfalls of device drivers.
