[BALU] Query regarding comm ports in windows

Does anyone here have a way to flush whatever kind of comm port buffer  
may exist on Windows XP?  I'm having some problems with a third-party  
file that's required to drag information from one of the types of  
handheld unit; it's creating partially duplicated lines.  The problem  
persists for a short while when I manually run the batch job designed  
to draw the files across, not just when the batch file is run from my  
program, so the only thing I can think of is that the problem is  
somehow connected to the ports themselves.  (Only a short while;  
second or third attempt to manually run the batch file and copy the  
thing over worked.)

It's either that or the past three months I've spent modifying and  
testing the program that deals with those just got junked, but I'm  
hoping it isn't at that point yet.
