Arduino Serial Read Text File

I am currently trying to get a value (Yes!) from the Arduino to a text file (data.txt).

The problem is that the data isn't being read from the Arduino's Serial. When I tried to simple print the value to the prompt in processing, I came out empty handed.

Below is my code for the Arduino

Below is my code for processing:

Yes, this code was found from thisstackoverflow question.

The Arduino sketch. If the character read will be a number (0 to 9) then it is stored in the array, if it will be a non-numeric character (in this case the comma ‘,’) the reading will be stopped and the value inside the array is converted to a numeric value through the atoi () function. File.read from the txt file into a list of variables using the approriate type, then pass those variables to the function you want to use.even if that function is just Serial.print. Play around with it, you will figure it out! FILE_WRITE enables read and write access to the file, starting at the end. If a file 'test.txt' was already on the card, that file would be opened. Name the instance of the opened file 'myFile'. Once opened, use myFile.println() to write a string to the card, followed by a carriage return. Once the content is written, close the file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

UTF-8 in the Arduino serial monitor. When UTF-8 character are sent to the serial port, a serial terminal program should be used that is able to use UTF-8 characters. Most serial terminal programs in Linux support UTF-8. To use extended Characters in the serial monitor, it is necessary to convert the UTF8 -strings to extended ASCII. How can I save data directly in the pc using an Arduino UNO? Capture the output to a text file using a terminal program. Use a PrintWriter to write the data read from the serial port to a.

Check out this line:

This line assumes you only have one serial connection. If you have more than one serial connection, you're going to have to change the hard-coded index being used in this line.
