Last year I put together some Matlab code to do this. I've placed it
I was having trouble using the Matlab Serial Port Object in Matlab 7
(works fine in Matlab 6), so there is some duplication of code for
using the SPO or alternatively the cport .dll, which I think I obtained
from the Matlab user-contributed files archive. Cport turned out not to
work reliably when using two serial ports simultaneously. In any
event, this should show you what needs to be sent down the serial line
to the XBUS for the PA4s.
