How to divide a number in two bytes

We are trying to save a number > 255 in a EEPROM cell. Please we need an example code.

Examples here;

EEPROM Library

That reference page turns up when you do a Google search on 'Arduino EEPROM reference'

int x = 321; //0x0141
EEPROM.write(0x0010, highByte(x));      //0x01 is written at location 0x0010 of internal EEPROM
EEPROM.write(0x0011, lowByte(x));      //0x41 is written at location 0x0011 of internal EEPROM

Use EEPROM.put() and EEPROM.get(); it will write and read any variable type as needed (with exception if String (capital S)).

The OP is asking for the division of a number into two bytes before the number is stored into EEPOM. The EEPROM.put() command, of course, divides the number into two bytes before writing it into EEPROM; but, the process happens beyond the knowledge of the user.

Based on the title, you are right. Based on the text (store a number greater than 255), my solution is also a possibility ;)

Although OP asks "in a cell" which is not posible; it will be two or more cells.
