ARDUINO and ASCII data string


    Apr 02 2009 | 2:44 pm
    hi,
    I try to put some text from Max5 to a 16x2 LCD display, via an arduino board. All is right with hardware but i'm not fluent in C and C++. So i need help to find a way to tell arduino to understand ASCII data string like "hello world!". I suppose i need to declare this string, read it from serial, and then load it to LCD via lcd.print...
    thanks a lot for your help !

      not sure of the specifics, but [atoi] and/or [itoa] might help on the Max side, for formatting ASCII.

      Hi,
      Yes, thanks...
      But all is right for me on the Max side... Not on the arduino side...
      Hope finding help on the arduino forum...
