Send String to Arduino over Serial Connection

Hello! I’ve been using the PlatformIO IDE in VSCode for over 6 months now, and it has really been a lifesaver for development on the Arduino. (Though great for starting out, the Arduino IDE lacked some seriously nice features). However, in the Arduino IDE, I have the option to type in a text box at the top of the serial monitor, allowing me to send data over my USB connection to my Arduino (Uno). Plus, it allows me to specify special characters that follow the string, such as newline, carriage return, etc.

How can I send data to my Arduino serial buffer via USB in PlatformIO?
