logging serial port output


I am trying to do the following:
1. Access a serial port say COM1
2. Do some processing (eg download a file)
3. While I am doing step 2 i need to monitor to monitor serial port for any errors

The only way i can think of is starting a process that read the serial port

Is there any other way to do this? Is there a option in Win32-SerialPort to tell it to log the serial port output to a file

Any help appreciated
