I am currently using an Arduino Uno with a Ladyada motor shield for a project to run several motors. I need to to be able to send a .txt file or similar to the Arduino using a computer. I am curious as to how I can send the text to the Arduino where it will be able to pick apart the said text letter by letter and read each sentence, word, paragraph, etc... in order that they appear. The motors will in-turn respond to the sequence and appearance of letters. For example, if the text file contains the word "computer", I want to be able to give the motors commands corresponding first to the letter "c" then "o" and so on. If anybody has any ideas as how to go about this, please let me know. Thanks!
