 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I just assembled the 16X32 LED Matrix from Adafruit and Backpack from nootropic. The backpack acts as an Arduino Uno and uses the "print()" function. The LED matrix can display only five characters at a time. I would like to scroll longer words. Can someone point me in the direction of example codes that will scroll long words?

Thak you.

Example? I am working on code that will display up to 230 characters (limited by free RAM in the application), taking input from serial interface and allowing it to be stored to EEPROM for indepedent playback on an 8x32 display.
But its 21 pages long. Hardly an example.

Lady Ada at Adafruit solved my problem. She lists a program that does exactly what I wanted.
