I'm using Serial.read(); to read keyboard input from the serial monitor. It only sends the characters after hitting enter or clicking the "send" button. Is there a way to read keyboard input without having to use "enter"?


Not with the Serial Monitor built into the Arduino IDE. It is possible to use an external terminal program with buffering disabled though.
