Storing a $tring in EEPROM

Post by keejay »

Hi there,

I have a $tring that I need to save into EEPROM on a PIC. How would one go about doing this? The EEPROM 8 bit and the string is 20 charaters long. I know how to do this for long numbers, but not quite sure what format to store the string in EEPROM.

Hello,

A string is basically just an array of bytes with a null byte at the end to signify the end of data.

Here is an example to read and write strings to the EE memory to get you started.

Storing a $tring in PIC EEPROM

Post by keejay »

Hi,

I was wondering what the best way was to store a string variable of approx 10 characters in the PIC onboard EEPROM? Any ideas?
