fopen("/dev/uart","w") returning NULL

Hey guys, 

 

I'm attempting to communicate between my PC to the Nios II via RS-232. 

I've built up my system in SOPC and I'm using the eclipse tool to code in c. 

When I use the function fp = fopen("/dev/uart","w"), I always receive NULL. 

/dev/uart is the correct path according to my system.h file. 

 

Could you offer any advice? 

 

Thanks, 

Justin

To fix the problem I unchecked "Lightweight device driver API" in the BSP editor.
