I just purchased an Arduino Duemilanove ATOmega 328, and while I have a decent amount of programming experience, I have never used Java (that is the language that you program with in the GUI, correct?)
Anyway, one of my questions is probably a very simple fix, but I was wondering how do I stop a program from running? I have tried the 'Blink' and the 'Fade' programs in the Examples area, and there does not seem to be a way to stop them from running; I click the 'Stop' button at the top of the page, but the program continues to run. Even when I unplug the power cord, the program continues running once I plug the power back into the board.
Also, when I was running the 'Fade' program, I wanted to see output of the values of a variable, but nothing printed. I used the Serial.print() function, although that is probably not the correct one to use. I expected to see something in the black text region below the code for the program on the GUI, but I'm assuming that Serial.print() will output to a serial port, which is not what I was looking for. Is there a way to read a text output of a program if I use the correct function?
Thank you for your help.
