1  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / typo in code on this page: http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SoftwareSerialPrintln on: January 26, 2014, 08:31:08 pm
See this page:   http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SoftwareSerialPrintln

I think there is a problem but I could be wrong. I think the example code posted on the Arduino site needs a capital letter S at the beginning of each Serial.print command....

Here is the problematic code.
Code:
SoftwareSerial serial(10,11);
int analogValue;

void setup()
{
  serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  // read the analog input on pin 0:
  analogValue = analogRead(A0);

  // print it out in many formats:
  serial.print(analogValue);         // print as an ASCII-encoded decimal
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character
  serial.print(analogValue, DEC);    // print as an ASCII-encoded decimal
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character
  serial.print(analogValue, HEX);    // print as an ASCII-encoded hexadecimal
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character
  serial.print(analogValue, OCT);    // print as an ASCII-encoded octal
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character
  serial.print(analogValue, BIN);    // print as an ASCII-encoded binary
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character
  serial.print(analogValue/4, BYTE); // print as a raw byte value (divide the
                                     // value by 4 because analogRead() returns numbers
                                     // from 0 to 1023, but a byte can only hold values
                                     // up to 255)
  serial.print("\t");                // print a tab character   
  serial.println();                  // print a linefeed character

  // delay 10 milliseconds before the next reading:
  delay(10);
}
2  Development / Other Software Development / simple typo needs fix on: October 03, 2012, 10:13:00 pm
Need an editor to jump in and fix this please.
I found a simple typo on the read AnalogReadSerial Tutorial page:
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/AnalogReadSerial

Here is the broken sentence.....

"Finally, you need to print this information to your serial window as. You can do this with the command Serial.println() in your last line of code:"
