Hi Al,

If you check out the chuck examples folder that came in the chuck download
or in the "Open Example" menu item, there should be a "serial" subcategory
with some basic examples of communicating with serial devices (e.g.
Arduino) in there.

What I would recommend is sending your 5 analog values as a space separated
series of ASCII numbers, ending with a newline, and repeating this at
whatever your desired refresh rate is. In ChucK, you can use
onLine()/getLine() (as in the lines.ck example) to get each line of data,
which includes all 5 current sensor values. There is also a (minimally
documented) RegEx class you can use to pull out the values individually and
then convert them to integers.

Ive also attached another ChucK example I have that does something very
similar to this, except it reads only 3 sensor values and uses commas to
separate values.

Thats a lot of stuff, so let us know if you have any more questions.
