Hi There, I am running a arduino uno which generates a serial data stream (via USB). This is read by a processing application to visualize the data. Seperately I have developed a max/msp patch which generates a MIDI sound stream based on the same arduino output. The problem is that I would like to run both these apps at the same time, and use the same data. Both Applications would have to read the same COM port (no writing is needed). Is there any way I can do this without thinking of rewriting the programmes, i.e by something like a COM port emulator / data cloner etc. Under normal circumstances, once an app opens the port, no other application can lock onto it.
Thanks in advance!
