Is the serial monitor "built-in" or could it be an external program?The idea would be to have an option to start an external program like HyperTerminal or putty when the IDE serial monitor is selected.I think this is a good idea, because you have more options to clear the screen etc in a "proper" terminal program.
What happens is the IDE tells you that the com port is already in use and asks you if you want to terminate the other App.
Can you include an option to reset when the Serial monitor is started?The original IDE does this and so does Hyperterminal (I don`t know how Hyperterminal does it, but I always see the first Serial.prints when Hyperterminal is started).Thanks.
I am giving up this version of IDE. I was very excited to have something which is fixing most annoying errors of the original IDE. Downloaded installed and started the first project with dallas thermometers. After very painfull debugging I couldn't even compile the sketch. I was getting errors which gave completely no clue where the problem is. After several attempts I have landed with a bunch of errors like "variable or field declared void" - for all functions in the example project and gave up. There must be some changes in the compiler or something which is rendering example projects from OneWire.h and DallasTemperature unusable. I don't know what with other sketches but after opening this in original IDE problems disapeared.
OK.1.0.1i_20121023 failed to compile sketches correctly with same errors in previous post.1.0.1i_20121020 compiled everything sucessfully with no errors.Your change log shows that you fixed the compiler line number error between these two revs. How could that cause these errors?Oh, and I'm not ready to give up on your ide just yet. Way too many cool features.
