What will RS232READBYTE do on a Dandelion?  On a Dorado?  By the way, the function I sent you earlier today didn''t compile correctly, although the compiler did redefine it.  Thanks.'

This is due totally to a "bug" in RS232 file -- it is exporting a macro'
to the user with some fields left in symbolic form.  See upcoming reply'
on RS232READBYTE bug.'

RS232READBYTE has a macro definition which is "exported" to the user (for'
speed); unfortunately, the "correct" source code cannot be compiled in the user''s environment, so I have two copies of this macro in the RS232 file -- one called RS232READBYTE.BACKUP and the other RS232READBYTE -- the first of which is the "real" definition, and the second is a copy of the first which has been mechanically reduced to base-level Lisp code.  Unfortunately, this mechanical translation failed on the segment of the code that is DLion-specific (and of course almost all my usage is on a Dolphin).'
I''ve patched this on [Phylum]<Lisp>Library>RS232. and .DCOM.'
In relation to your other questions, the RS232 facilities don''t yet work'
on a Dorado -- the connection between the printerport and a UART (such as'
found in the Martin-board for the Dolphin) hasn''t been established.'
