Send String from Processing to Arduino

"To my surprise copying this code into Processing, worked perfectly with my Arduino code."

Which part of the code did you use, the writing to the serial port or the comport identification?

I just used the full code because I wanted to see if it would actually work. It is set up to allow for a mock serial monitor to be used in processing.

I am going to try and identify how it works to incorporate into my original code.
