Topic: How do I use Progmem and is this the right solution. (Read 636 times) previous topic - next topic


Good day
I am looking for a solution to store about 55 - 99 raw ir codes is progmem the right place to store them.
I don't know if EEprom will be large enough.
And I think I ma running out of SDRAM as I still have plenty of flash memory left.
My project stops responding as soon as I reach about 40,000bytes out of 258,048bytes of flash memory.The serial monitor remains blank and the mega don't respond.

How do I use progmem to store these codes, ore are the flash library a better proposition.
I tried to figure out how to index and call the code once in progmem

void setup()

void loop() {
  //if (Serial.read() != -1) {
    //for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
   // }

void IRc1(){cli();for (int i = 0; i < 1; i++) {irsend.sendRaw(raw1,100,38);delay(20);}sei();}// one for every ir code more than 55 of these functions
void IRc2(){cli();for (int i = 0; i < 1; i++) {irsend.sendRaw(raw2,100,38);delay(20);}sei();}// one for every ir code more than 55 of these functions
                                               // the (raw2,100,38)changes depending on the IR code as well as the number of repeats.     
// 1 function for every ir code to be able to call the code from anywhere in the sketch.

I need to use the functions to call the code from diffident locations throughout the sketch ie. from udp call / ir call / voice call / or serial call.
Unless there is a better way (Always open to suggestions)

Many Thanks I would appreciate any information.
