if I have a array I am looking to stuff can I use

if I have a array I am looking to stuff can I use a inline function to keep it fast and not return to it because the array is global?

So I have a global array of 24 bytes.

the function call inserts a constant int.

getbyte(int bytenum) { stuffarrray[bytenum]; }

used as: getbyte(1);

can I use a inline function to keep it fast and not return to it because the array is global?

What is the “it” t which “it” should not return?

I have a global array.

it needs to be stuffed from pin input.

rather than incrementing that array in the main code I think calling a function would be better. so since it is a global array I can input constants to define the array element and it changes the array values without returning anything.

here is a snapshot of the code

include "pins.h" //the pin definitions pin number= name

include "var.h" //global vareable definition

void setup() { //initilise the serial usb hardware check to see if a program has the port latter Serial.begin(9600); // USB is always 12 Mbit/sec

init_pins_direction();

//if serial port has to be started the wait for dtr command might //have to be commented out and run once. while (!Serial.dtr()) ; // wait for user to start the serial monitor

Serial.println("This is the teensy++ TI ADS1278 ADC test program."); int number = 1234; Serial.println(number); // number (base 10 if 16 or 32 bit) Serial.println(number, DEC); // number, base 10 (default) Serial.println(number, HEX); // number, base 16/hexidecimal Serial.println(number, BIN); // number, base 2/binary Serial.println(number, BYTE); // number, as a single byte Serial.send_now(); //transmit buffer imediately }

void loop() {

// read the state of the pushbutton value: DRDY_State = digitalRead(DRDY);

if(DRDY_State==LOW){

clkoutallbytes();

print24arraybytes(); }//end of if DRDY is LOW ... this I hope is fast enough...

//PortB 7 is unconnected!

//two's compliment is the sign number

}//end of main

You're up to over 80 posts - do you think you could use the "#" button, please?

it needs to be stuffed from pin input.

rather than incrementing that array

"stuffed"?

How do you "increment" an array? Do you mean "extend"?

The array starts with all 0's I want it to take the input from the sensor and put it in the array. The array has a number going to it that specifies the array element. That in my main function the fuction has a input that is the index value for the array arrayelement[N];

button? I put the headers in .h files to make the first parts smaller and hyde them.

I think you're talking about indices (plural of "index").

Could you go back to the earlier post, click on "modify", then highlight all the code, then click on the "#" button in the editor, please?

What would that give me except for only # as my code.

In the top row of the buttons above the area where you type your messages, there is a button with a # sign on it. When you select the code, and push that button, tags are added before and after the highlighted text. The tags tell the forum software to display that text differently.

Try it, and see what happens.

course when you use the function in the IDE the above is exactly what it spits out

::)

Oh I feel like a Noob I selected my code in the arduino enviroment and did that and replaced it all with a # ... I thought it was his way of saying take a walk. :D

So ok here I will do that now thanks for clarifying.

oh much nicer.
