    Reading Serial Port

      HI, I am a newbie and I need help in understanding port programming.
      I have a reader which reads a pre-programmed card using radio frequency. the reader is connected to the computer by a serial cable. I want to write a program to read the data from the reader and store in a database. Once I know how to read the data coming to the port, it's easy to store them in the database. Could anyone please help me or provide info which would equip me with knowledge to write the program?
      I appreciate your help. Thank you
