I am looking for a simple program that can send data down the serial to the PIC. I have used Putty with USB-UART converter on my laptop. I have made the PIC->PC communiation work which is frankly a trivial task.
The question is, how to do the opposite. I can't find any option in Putty to send data down the serial port. What alternative do I have? Is the only option to use custom application written in C++/C#? It is better that I be able to implement flow control (of any kind) so the PC could be told to pause sending the data.
