Text file creation

Hey guys, I am working on automation project which involves heavy data logging. Since the project is intended for a user with no specific technical knowledge I would like to save data as a .txt of .xls file either on an SD Card or on the PC such as the data is more accesible to the user instead of just displaying the data via a serial port monitor. Do you think this is possible?


Are you going to ask this again? Yes, it's possible.

Send serial data to your PC, and have a program to convert that to your text format running. I'm pretty sure Java or Python even should do it. (I wasn't sure, but after a google I wasn't surprised http://pyserial.sourceforge.net/)

This comes up quite often on the forums
