I have noticed a very strange mega 2560 behavior and I want to ask if someone else has experienced the same. If I try to upload this code on arduino uno it will works perfectly

Code: [Select]
void setup() {
 Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
 Serial.println("ahhhh!!!");
}


When I try to put the same on an arduino mega 2560 the  uploading process will never end, it crash!
Now try to remove the 3 !!!, the code will become
Code: [Select]
Serial.println("ahhhh");
and the uploading will be successfully accomplished.
So, I don't know if it's only with my board but I get the conclusion my mega cannot accept string containing 3 (or more) character of exclamation point!!!  :smiley-eek:

Coding Badly


You have been bitten by the "unsearchable bug".

It's a bug in the 2560 bootloader.  I believe a fix is available.
