Thank you, processing does the trick. Kinda forgot the arduino was a computer in itself smiley-sweat

but the arduino is sending it to my computer, otherwise i could've never know what he'd be reading. There must be a way to intercept the serial connection or copy it out of the arduino's-software-console-unit into a file or into a c(++) program.

in c++ one can write just as easily to a .txt file as printing in the command line.
with fpintf() and printf().
printf() ==> Serial.printIn(), i know. But i've got no idea about fprintf().

Im talking about fprintf() not printf()  smiley-eek
So not printing to the terminal, but to a file.

As a project i want to make a device, which controlles my computer fans.

The fans i use arn't PWM fans, but that doesnt really matter, for u can PWM them anyways  smiley-grin
Since the Arduino Uno i got 5V outputs, I added a circuit with some MOSFETs (BUZ11) to get them up to 12V. PWM-ing them works like a charm (if the PWM-frequency is increased; it kills the buzz).

Now i want to read out the PWM-percentages. Can i just use fprintf() in the arduino software? Or do i have to work around that, witch will be a pain in the a**

In the future i also planned on reading out temps(either LM35s or a voltage-deviding NTC), but that's for the future

Help will much be appreciated,
