How to forward data to serial port?

I'm trying to make some debugging and I need to forward that data to amiga's serial port.

How to do that? I can forward it ti text file, no problem, but how to forward it to serial port?

Use SER: as file name.

On Kick 1.3 and below you need Port-Handler in L:

Hello, I don’t suppose you’ll mind a hijack now your problem is solved.

Does this also work for the Parallel port? and if so, you are talking about within a compiler,
and not within OS? Can you copy to SER: as a drive in a CLI or something like that?
Could it also be assumed you can also receive a file through the parallel port in the same manner
if some device will send to the Amiga’s serial or parallel port?
Cheers

Within your own assembly/c program, using SER: should also work, provided you use the OS functions to write to the file.

Did you mean PAR: ? because SER: was already mentioned.

I’m thinking of something along the lines of a Parallel interface for connecting SD card with it’s own filesystem controller.
So you can send a file of data, and it manages the card filesystem... but that still can’t seem to be ever OS friendly.
It seems you’d always have to open some program to transfer files to or from it,
and then use the Amiga program to save that data to a real OS file on HDD to do anything with it.

I think that sending data through the parallel port is not as simple and there's no single standard for it so you'd have to go more low level.

IIRC, somebody made an sd card reader for the amiga parallel port as a diy project a while back.. It comes with amiga os dos handler and everything. Can't remember if the thread is here on eab or on amibay.
