Program for Serial Testing with Arduino

Hi, I am doing some programming with usb serial communication on Arduino, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good program for sending and receiving serial messages via usb on a Mac.

Something simple that I could use for testing programs would be great. Let me know if you know of anything.


What's wrong with Serial Monitor for that purpose?

You can use any terminal program, if you make it connect to the Arduino USB/COM port. Dunno what terminal programs can be used on a Mac, find out yourself.

@epalaima, your description of what you want is not very clear.

If you want to run a program on your Mac to send and receive messages automatically this Python - Arduino demo may be of interest.


Its already built in to the os. "Screen" is the command in terminal.
