I have done this in Hardware UART, now i want to do it in Software UART.

My project is using an RFID reader to read RFID tags. Im using C18.

This is my code for Hardware UART.

unsigned char uart_rec(void)			//receive uart value
	unsigned char rec_data;
	while(PIR1bits.RCIF==0);				//wait for data
	rec_data = RCREG;
	return rec_data;					//return the data received
This function is used to read the tag ID through the RFID reader.

How to change that function to be used with sw_uart of C18?
