Re: c_cc[VTIME] not working under NT

Hi Egor, hi all,

thanks for your mail. The program runs now perfect with the select()
command, but only when i start the program in the Prompt-(MSDOS)-Window in
WinNT. When i start it under VB6 then i see my program running in the
Taskmanager but consuming 99% of cpu time and the timeout is never reached.
It looks like that everything is running except any timer functions. What is
the difference here?
I have no other choice than to start the serial communication application
under VB6.

Thanks for your help
