I have the Arduino and Instrument-Control packages installed. I uploaded the required sketch to my Arduino Uno and have it plugged in. I have put pkg load arduino without issue.

However, when I type ar=arduino() in order to initiate the connection as directed in the documentation the command window just hangs - it looks like it is still processing the action. I haven't been able to leave it trying for longer than 30 minutes but that's at least how long it lasts.

How can I fix this? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program and package.
