Hello this can be done with two ways:

- Arduino sends console commands and controller sends responses.
- Write a script in controller that will send data to arduino via serial (using SCRO command to choose the output and the print command).

Hello Niko ,

Thanks for the reply.
The second solution suits me better.But , technically , i just understood that i should print the variable that i want to send via serial something like "Print("a = ", a, "\n")" .WHat's a SCRO command ??

SCRO command is used in order to choose the output of the print command. If you set setconfig(_SCRO, 1) then the data are going to RS232, if setconfig(_SCRO, 2) then the data are going to USB.
