Hi List,

I'm getting started with an Arduino and microcontrollers in general. 
While the Arduino IDE is quick to set up, I don't find it very comfortable.

Luckily, theres a Arduino Project Wizard which will help me get started 
using Qt Creator for development. However, I can't find any info on how 
to display the Arduino's serial output in Qt Creator. Is there a hack to 
make Creator read from a serial device and display the output in one of 
its panes?

If not, I might want to write a plugin which does this. Pointers on how 
to get this done quickly would be appreciated. A Linux-only solution 
would be fine, but if it's easy to make it portable, that would be even
