Topic: Escape codes for serial monitor (Read 927 times) previous topic - next topic


Can the serial monitor be designed so that it accepts Escape codes?


If you're asking if Serial Monitor supports it, the answer is no.
If this question is a request, you should log a request on github.

My view
Serial Monitor is a debug tool and hence does not have a need for it. Use a real terminal program if you need support for ansi escape sequences.
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

Use a terminal emulator program such as PuTTY or Realterm. I use minicom on Linux.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.
