I have a sketch that seems to be running out of RAM using a Atmega 328p, as I have quite a few LCD Print and Serial.Print requirements. There are a few variables that would be useful to be stored in EEPROM so that they are remembered after power off, but my question is that there is 1k EEPROM available which is not being used. If I write a few variables to EEPRON, does this actually free up the same amount of RAM? Or will a susequent amount of RAM now be used in the access of those EEPROM variables?
Can I store text strings used in LCD Print and Serial.print in EEPROM and what are the consequences? Thanks
