    Default Best serial port library?

    Hello!

    I want to developed a software with serial port comunication (a USB-RS232 cabke will be connected in the PC (USB) and in a uController (RS232)).

    Actually I did this quite a few times in the past using a little bit old version of QSerialDevice, so my problem is not about the connection itself. My doubt is about which avaliable lib around is the best. I know of




    but I have no idea which is best, that is, for my app: I need to build a 'validator' that will compare data received from two different parts of a system and I must check 1) if the data is the same in both parts and 2) the system's latency and other time-quality issues. So I need a lib that gives me 100% guarantee that the data received was that it presented me and that is really fast, and I know little about the options.

    So could somebody please give me a hint on this?

    Thanks,

    Momergil

    Yes, it's lobbying interests.

    PS:
    And to be honest, I'm right: QtSerialPort - is better on current time.
    Just, ot everyone knows about it library, all the "by inertia" using QextSerialPort, which is much inferior...

    I'm using QextSerialPort since 4 years. Now version 1.2 RC. I see no reason why I should change the library to QtSerialPort.
