Hi guys,i'm looking for a program that can simulate a serial device, so that when i run my code, which sends data thru the COM port, I can see what's being sent out of the COM port without an actual device connected to my computer.
I've been searching for such programs.Now my question is what would you call such a program?? a Serial port emulator? or Virtual serial port emulator?

I kinda remember someone else used Hyperterminal to do things like this(i may be wrong), but it's not supported in Win7 any more. Any suggestions appreciated.
