Solution 1)
I have an object which reads mouse events and events from 
MicroTouch  controllers through the serial port --->
only for linux.
I guess it's something similar as Wini's object for jMax.

Solution 2)
Miller's  code for the serial object does output only, 
currently via the Tcl/Tk interface.

Something similar could be written for serial input on Windows.

In pd's src directory:
Look at the "serial_.." routines in x_misc.c and at the 
com1_open, com1_send in
(Or contact me directly for further informations)
