This works for ending an EXE, without dropping DTR:

        IF comport$ <> "0" THEN
                CLOSE #1
                OUT portadd, 3
        END IF
' 4 portadd = &H2EC
' 3 portadd = &H3EC
' 2 portadd = &H2FC
' 1 portadd = &H3FC

I suppose it would work for chaining to an exe or shelling,
all you have to do is re-open it, there is a bug fix out
there somewhere but isn't it much easier to use this?
