I am very much interested in a free C compiler. I would be nice to
post the source on www.

We use a 485 bus(57600 baud) on our plastic molding machine monitoring
differental operation of 485 helps its noise immunity plus we run it in
Remeber the terminator. We use a terminal system that lets the units be
wired in or out of the bus (usually the term board does not have to be
removed for service).

They door opener detectors at stores and some alarm systems use
microwave units for detecting
movement. Not really RADAR as they only detect the doppler shift caused
by movement and not
