problems with Processing

Hi Guys,

I’ve just begun figuring out the best way to communicate between Processing and Ardunio … basically I’d like to graph my incoming data from 5 thermistors …

All the sample code I’ve tried has not worked … what keeps happening is when the Processing sketch is initiated, my analog values become muddled in Arduino.

for instance … a series of values with a carriage return would read
535
545
555
565
etc … just fine in Arduino …

when the Processing sketch is run to attempt to use this data something like this occurs …

5
454
566544
5456
45
56654
etc …

which causes the Processing script to simply not read anything coherent and not graph anything at all…

any ideas??

some screen shots to explain what I mean ....

I have had this problem if I inadvertently also turned on the Arudino's IDE serial monitoring. You cannot have both the Arduino and Processing monitoring the same serial port.

AH!!! ... silly me .... I should have known :-[

thanks!
