In theory, could I load a VERY small program into the EEPROM, and then, at a certain point in my code, load the program?

Ex.
I run my very complex program until a button is pressed. The arduino then loads this program:

Code: [Select]
void setup() {}
void loop() {}


(It's my null program, it does nothing and takes up 450bytes of space.)

Coding Badly


Why would you want to do that?

I never said I did.

It would be completely pointless... In theory you could make a cannon which fired toasters - not a lot of point to it.

You are better off just making them different looping functions and having the button as an interrupt to run some code to switch between them  ;)

Do you just pull these ideas at random out of thin air?


Yes, I did. I pressurized the air in my house and put into a sealed flask with this:

As the air evaporated, the levels were fed from the sensor to my arduino, which output the data as ASCII.

Good thing you told us. I was beginning the think you'd pulled them from somewhere else.  ;)
