Embedded source code

Has anyone considered the idea of storing the *.INO file into the MCU memory during download, in a way that it can be later retrieved into a new *.INO file? It sure would be handy for me. It would probably entail ...

  • defining a standard area where the program text should be stored in the memory map
  • defining what will be stored - just the INO file, or just local files (no libraries)
  • a feature in the IDE to enable the writing of the code and reading it back into a *.INO file

Agreed, but my situation might be a bit more complex than that. Has anyone else considered it?
