How do I use the additional serial ports on the Arduino Mega?
 ;D (no offence, just fun)[/edit]
and there is this one from yesterday: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1241785046/2#2
'mega serial' in the in the forum search works wonders. ;)
Sorry, It was late and i diidn't state what I really need to know. I saw that post, but do not know how to use the hardware serial library (I've been tasked with building a project by sunday and am basically taking a crash course in arduino programming). Can someone post a code snippet please?
There are example sketches distributed with the Arduino IDE, look in: Sketchbook\Examples\Communication
To use on of the other three serial ports on the mega, use the name in the link I posted above.
