    I still have question about how your operate on laptop.
    1. What program you use on laptop to run your serial_interface.c code?
    2. Do I need to compile the serial_interface.c code into PIC chip?
    3. What is Good_Terminal.exe used for?

    If you can provide me some information that will be very appreciated.
