Thanks - i will take your advice and set up the Linux box.

Currently I have this:

char requestString[] = " HELLO WORLD ";

Can you give me a pointer how this should look if its taking the text direct from Serial port?

Thanks for the quick response.

I chose PHP as my plan is to have a webcam on my LED matrix. People can then visit my site, type in a message on the webpage and then see this message displayed on the LED matrix.

If there is a better way of doing it i would be very happy to hear.

I will eventually have it running via a Linux webserver here in my office

Hi,

Just want to say great forum.

I hope someone will be able to help me with what i imagine is quite a simple thing.

I have a 8x8 LED matrix that i have set up and works well:

Code:

http://oomlout.com/8X8M/8X8M-ScrollMessage.txt

I now want to change the message dynamically by reading a txt file so I can use PHP to write a txt file that Arduino reads.

I already have set up a local webserver and writing the txt file so its just the reading of that txt via serial. Its on a Mac if that helps.

Thanks for any help

Best

Jim
