Sending data via usb back to the 0014 program

I just got my new arduino 0014 boardd up and running. At least it blinks on command. Could use a little help. I would like to write a program that sends the output via the USB cable back to the arduino enviornment program and displays the output at the bottom of the screen. Any ideas on this would help.

Many thanks.

Yes, once your sketch is finishing uploading then hit the serial monitor icon on the IDE (last icon on the right). Then you should see a baud rate selection window at the top of the monitor screen, set this to whatever baud rate you selected in your sketch, example:

Serial.begin(57600);

You can of course also use instead a general purpose serial program on your PC to do the same thing for example Hyperterminal if using Windows.

Thanks. That did the trick.. Works fine now.
