Writes binary data to the serial port. This data is sent as a byte or series of bytes; to send the characters representing the digits of a number use the print() function instead.
Arduino Mega also supports: Serial1, Serial2, Serial3 (in place of Serial)
- val: a value to send as a single byte
- str: a string to send as a series of bytes
- buf: an array to send as a series of bytes
- len: the length of the buffer
Returnsbyte : write() will return the number of bytes written, though reading that number is optional
Serial.write(45); // send a byte with the value 45
int bytesSent = Serial.write(“hello”); //send the string “hello” and return the length of the string.
