and of course by this I mean how would I do so
What do you mean by soft-code? To me, this means that you want to change, at run time, the servo position. That's what zoomkat's code does.
If you want to send the servo to a specific position, that is hard-coding the position.
int pos = 78;
I would like to take the current location of the servo, and change the position, then be able to do this again, so that I can hit one key to make it move forward, and one key to make it move backward. (I want to have it move in degrees, not over a certain period of time like the code zoomkat gave me.)
I already tried to declare an int and and have serial read the current angle of the servo. Then add one to the angle when a certain String was read in the Serial Monitor. I hope that clears up what that means. (I am still getting used to the syntax sorry)
