I am new to this. I am sorry if I am posting this at the wrong place. I have a Arduino Uno. I like to read the eeprom and have its content sent back to my computer. I found the code (see below) but I don't know how to use/execute it. What software/program do I use ? What are the exact steps to do this (hardware connection and software execution) ? I am using a USB cable between my computer and the Arduino Uno, and using the downloaded Arduino software (arduino-0022.zip) on Windows XP. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well the easiest way to watch that sketch do it thing is just to upload the sketch to your board. Then there is a serial monitor button on the IDE that you can use to watch any serial data that the board is sending. You do have to select the correct baudrate value for the serial monitor, 9600 is being used in our example sketch. One can also send serial data to the arduino board using the serial monitor, but the sketch has to have the correct programming steps to read the data.
Does that get you started?
PS: I went ahead and uploaded that sketch into my arduino and it does indeed work fine and the serial monitor shows the values of the eeprom being read.
