How are the new serial ports on the Mega accessed?

I’ve ordered a Mega, but until it gets here, I’m confused about how the serial ports are accessed.

Is there some way to tell Serial.begin(), Serial.read(), etc. to look at the new serial ports, or do I have to access them by talking directly to the chip?

Thanks!

(I did search FWIW, but didn’t find that thread)

The forum search is… Well… Poor at best.

Use google :wink:
