Serial.println - where do i get the output?

Hi everybody i'm having a strange issue. Where am i supposed to receive a Serial.printl('test') string ? the code is the easiest hello world code:

void setup()

void loop()

  delay(1000);                  // waits for a second


It's an Arduino Diecimila - I'm on windows - uploaded to COM3 and i see no "on" string anywhere in the program interface... I guess this string should get back to me in the lowest part of the program (the black promptish part, right?) but i get nothing else than "Binary sketch size..." etc.

Also note: i've also tried on my other Mac OSX - and the problem is still there. I've also tried with a

>cat /dev/tty.usbserial-A4001KK5

from a terminal - and nothing comes out. Furthermore, i tried to output data thru the TX pin and it works (printing MIDI output at a higher baud). I'm stuck. It really looks like there is no serial output thru the USB port...

What's my problem?! PLEASE Help!

Have you selected the serial monitor icon - its the one on the right at the top of the window - then the area at the bottom of the window displays an serial input it has recieved.



This was embarassing. Can’t believe i didnt check that icon.
Thanks anyway, the good news is that it works.
