EEPROM: undocumented method

I have recently found out about the EEPROM.length() method, that returns the byte size of the EEPROM. However, this is completely undocumented on the official documentation page. I wonder what else is missing there, in general...

Your post was MOVED to its current location as it is more suitable.

What made you think that your post had anything to do with the Arduino Website and forum ?

I make it a habit to look at the source code of all libraries when I use them for the first time. It is the ultimate documentation.

probably best to just refer to the github library for it instead! :wink:

This documentation deficiency was reported a couple years ago here:

My post is not related to the forum, but it certainly is related to the website, since I was referring to the official documentation on www.arduino.cc. Isn't that the mother website of this very forum?

It is not a programming question either, since I wasn't asking anything about programming: just reporting an issue with the docs.

Apart from "Programming Questions" and maybe "The Bar", the forum categories have always eluded me.

Good point; that is precisely what I did.

Me too. I have always felt that there were too many categories and often it is not easy to know where to post or where to move a topic too.

I apologise for the tone of my reply when I moved the topic

You can move your topics yourself; just click the big black pencil next to the title in the open topic, select the category from the dropdown and click the image

In this case, I don't think that moderators will object if you move it back :wink:

No problem for me
