Guys, I have a question regarding something about eeprom storage. I am sure someone has done this before.
Let say you have a new board, on your program loadup you do a get() at whatever address you would normally write your data to. What is a good way to check and make sure that you do have data there before wasting your time trying to pull your entire values down?
I am not really looking for a code example, just some thoughts. I am sitting here trying to figure out the best way to do something like this but can't come up with anything good.
The other day I was googling around and I saw someone do something similar (if data, length) I only remember those few words. I wasn't interested in that at the time, I guess the though stayed in my mind and I am wondering about that idea now but dont know what is a reliable way for fault tolerance.
