Ok. I know I missed the answer somewhere in all the offline/online literature,so I will ask the question here. I am doing a simple seroutprogram using PicBasic Pro on a PIC16F628A chip. Everything is working fine, but I need the serout instructions for clearing the screen and starting on a new line (linefeed) for Windows Hyperterminal program. I have tried all the LCD related instructions for clearing and new line, but hyperterminal doesn't seem to like them much. So, if anyone has that info, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks in advance.
