I'm trying to communicate with a Zebra TR-220 printer that
is attached to a pocket PC 2002 device. I've previously
used MScomm controls for such work in a desktop environment,
but i'm new to PDA developement and wanted to know if anyone
knew of analogous technology in Pocket PC that will allow me
to send data directly to a com(serial) port.

Hi Steve,
I guess you can do it via some api calls but I'm not sure which
functions to use on pocketpc though.
Also another option could be if the api cannot be used directly to take
a look at http://www.marshallsoft.com/WSC_eUSR.htm - they have a lib/dll
for doing serial comms on win ce.
