Actually I'm engineer but I'm totally new to Arduino. Also, my knowledge in programming is considered to be moderate or less.
I'd like to ask about "serial monitor", what does it mean and what's its function??
Also, when i went to download the Arduino programming language, I found 4 different versions as follows: arduino-1.0.5-r2-windows arduino-1.5.6-r2-windows arduino-nightly-windows Intel_Galileo_Arduino_SW_1.5.3_on_Windows_v1.0.0
what are the main differences between them and which one I would use for now?
many thanks for your all dears
