I have a voltage meter connected to my RS-232 port and want to display the value on a website.
I made a program which is always on the background (VB). Every 10 seconds it reads out the voltage meter and produces a straight text-HTML file every 10 seconds. When I open this file in my web browser it works.
But I don't think this is the common way to make such things work.
Could someone give me a hint how to do this in a professional way ? I was thinking of an .exe-file which is executed via a CGI script ? Is this possible ?
My background : I have a programming background using Turbo Pascal / C / C++ / little VB but did nothing with the internet upto now.
Any hints ?
