I have a question.
First what I have:
1x Arduino Mega
1x Macbook Pro with Mac OS 10.6
Arduino IDE with serial monitor.
Eclipse C/C++ and Java (no libs/plugins whatever installed)
What I want to do is the following:
I want to read the sensors value on my laptop, this can be done by the serial monitor. However, I cant do anything with this data so far.
I know what to do:
- make a connection with Eclipse to my Arduino. simply read raw data from the usb port, which is basically a serial port.
- play with that from there on.
But I haven't got a clue how I should fix this. I know that I have to import a libraryu or some plugin. But I cant find the data to do this.
What am I looking for?
Someone that tells me how to setup eclipse (or any other IDE) so that I can run software and read data from the Arduino.
I have looked into the rxtx.org website but when I put the .jar files in the extensions folder, I cant upload any files to my arduino anymore.
I really, really! need this. When this thing is setup I can manage on my own, but Im just not that good in setting up a IDE for a new Hardware platform without tutorials
Any help is welcome!
Just leave a comment with a tip or a question. it'd really help me (:
With kind regards
