We require a simple terminal emulation program that allows ASCII commands to be sent via a RS232 (COM) port on a PC. The application will allow the user to type ASCII commands and send them to the connected device. It will show the characters entered by the user and those received from the device in a scrolling history window, using different coloured text to make it clear what was typed by the user and what was received from the attached device, the user shall also be able to enter comment lines that are shown in the scrolling history but are not sent to the attached device. The application must be written in Delphi 7, be a single executable file, run on Windows 98 through to Windows Vista as a limited user. It is critical that this application can be used by a limited user and must not require installation before use. The use shall be able to clear the scrolling history window and save its contents to a text file at any time. Other than the colourisation of the text, the ability to enter comments into the scrolling history and the user option to date and time stamp every line, this is in effect a simplified version of HyperTerminal.
