My program prints important information to serial monitor immediately after establishing a serial connection. By the time I’ve started the Monitor, it’s already too late. It is not acceptable for this application to simply insert a delay before printing to Monitor (the boss cares a lot about time till TFT screen lights up).
How can I get the Monitor to start as early as possible, automatically, when program starts.
Note: The program was originally developed in Arduino IDE. There, it was possible to keep the serial monitor connected from on program upload to the next, so I could always catch the initial output.
