Autostart serial monitor after upload

Hello,

I added a new feature to my IDE (sketch|Arduino 1.0.1) to start the serial monitor automatically after each upload. I can configure it under preferences. I've done this to speed up my workflow a little bit. It works fine for me. Cloud this be interesting? I can contribute my code. I only have some problems with internationalization. :~

KaHai I have the same functionality in my eclipse plugin and I think it works great (except with the Leonardo) So I feel it could be a great addition to the Arduino IDE. Best regards Jantje

two things, both good.

there is a bug improvement report for this feature, so maybe that you have shown it can be done, it will be implimented.

second, re eclipse,
what tool chain do you use ? any pointers on gettign eclipse and a chain up and running,
please

drjiohnsmith I us the same toolchain as the one delivered with Arduino. This to keep compatibility with Arduino as high as possible. More info can be found at eclipse.baeyens.it

Best regards Jantje

How did you do this? I looked in the preferences.txt file, but didn't see anything like this.

You need to edit the source of the IDE. I added this if you press the "Control" key:

With other minor enhancements I wanted, but it is still not published (I will release soon the version 2 of this MOD: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,118440.0.html)

I'm confused by the various postings and google topics:

DOES ARDUINO (1.0.6) IDE PROVIDE THE ABILITY TO AUTOSTART THE MONITOR AFTER UPLOAD?
