Hallo Cameron and others,

> The point is to make this easily accessible to other people

Then you jave to ask the question: what computer equipment or devices use
the male DB9-connector? Knowing this may give you the cable as well.

Answering this question myself:
- RS-232
- joystickport of C=, Atari and some other homecomputers
and..... that's all I can think of taking 20 years of computerexperience in

Hallo Groepaz,

> btw, using rs232 cables >10m are also a violation of the standard

Ehhhhh, missing at least one zero? We used to use lines of 150 meters long
in the KNP-paperfactories in Lanaken, Belgium, W/O any problem. But we
carefully took care that GND, PE and N were connected as mentioned on this
German site mentioned by Spiro.
