Does anyone know a good and free hyper terminal I can use to connect to it? I want to be able to send /r and /n as I need so the Arduino serial monitor is not good enough (unless I don't know how to).
Why do you say that the serial LCD Sparkfun sells needs an Arduino? They are stand-alone and don't need anything else to work@PaulS & liudr, that drop-down box is on 0022 aswellJust use Coolterm, uses post 2000 technology, has a clean interface and raw and ascii view, selectable enter representation, etcPutty lacks some key functionality as a serial terminal, and the others where before 2000 when last updated
It will be similar to the serLCD sparkfun sells except it still needs an arduino to control.
that relays every key press to the serial port, including tab, and back space or even ctrl
Quotethat relays every key press to the serial port, including tab, and back space or even ctrl"Ctrl" is a modifier like "shift", and is not sent by a serial terminal as a separate code.
