    how to read data from serial port


      I want to read data from serial port by using expressions (or script, does not matter) for attaching them to a null or somthing else in realtime.

      is any solution for this?

          It's not possible. AE doesn't support any realtime input, being that it itself is not very realtime. If you want that functionality, you have to write a real plug-in that takes care of all the system and driver stuff but even then you would be limited to pre-recording the info internally in your plug-in and fetching it to AE based on pre-determined cycles similar to a RAM preview, when your plug-in is done gathering the data, by creatively playing with the comp update commands and possibly widget drawing options or creating your own capture window. This is a lot more complicated than you may think and nothing you can just whip up with scripts or expressions.
