Thanks. The fact that I can only generate random characters by tapping
the screen, as distinct from specific characters, may hamper this
slightly, but I should be able to puzzle something out.

It seems that in this new age of USB, there are not many spare serial
ports knocking about. But the company I used to work for designed a
"break-out board" specifically for spying on RS232 communications and a
former colleague of mine has very kindly agreed to let me borrow one. So
that should help greatly.

Thanks. I may well need it.
