A pair of simple Bluetooth communication applications: one for a PDA running Pocket PC 2002, and the other should run on a PC. They should establish a connection via a Bluetooth. Send, receive and display both characters and strings.
The goal is too send 9 characters back and forth as quickly as possible, so I would like to know which is faster: sending single characters or if message over-head makes it faster to just send the 9 characters all together. Because timing is an important aspect of my larger project I would also like a timing utility so that I can measure the transmission time of a given number of transmissions ranging from 1 to 100 at a time.
I need the PDA version to be developed using embedded Visual C++ 2002 and the PC version made using visual C++ 6.0. Unless they can both be developed together, with differences designated by a compile-time definition of _PPC for the Pocket PC version.
The software should be developed so that I will have a library of functions to establish a connection and then send and receive the data. Something like:
bool sendC(char sendC);
char * getString(int *NumCharReceived);
bool * sendString(char* sendString, int *NumCharReceived);
bool openport(int port);
bool closeport(int port);
float testChartime(char sendC, int numTransmissions);//return ??"1 if any send failures, otherwise return the time it took to send and receive the transmissions.
One file with all of the communication functions, and then a separate application file that demonstrates utilizing these functions for each side of the communication pair. I need the communication functions all together in a separate class so that I can later use the functions to quickly develop a larger project utilizing these communication functions.
