	Well here is the RS232 Interface that I mentioned some months
	ago. The first thing that you will notice is that it uses a
	charge pump to supply the +/- supplies required for true RS232.
	If you find that you have to tune a few parameters in order to
	clean up the supply levels it wouldn't suprise me. If done right
	this project should cost well less than $10. Good Luck!

       The User is expected to know where +/- supplies attach to
      the opamp being used and to determine the pinout. All resistor
      and capacitor values are nominal and may require fine tuning.
      The prototype model of this circuit was found to run fine with
      both our VAX at 75ft run and my 1200baud modem at 40ft. If
      more than 3 line handshake is desired the charge pump should
      be modified for full wave operation and the approprate I/O
      circuit wired in (either transmitt or receive).
