That'll be:-

Then.   Looks good.  Lots of other usefull looking stuff there too.


There is a very good example program, you can download from the Lazarus 
Project pages, created by a character who goes by the name of "Jurassic Pork"!

His "LazSerialPort" component to be precise.
It, and it's author can be found at:-
http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org

It's mainly to illustrate his Serial (COM) port driver code, but it does a very good 
job as a GPS simulator, sending (and receiving) over the serial ports.

Best of all, it, and Lazarus are free, and also cross platform (though as yet, I've 
not got Laz' working on Linux.)

Oh, and you also get the sources.   I can mail direct the resulting .exe and 
related stuff if you need.   Works great on Windows 7, 32 and 64 bit, with USB to 
serial converters too.
