Is there a way to get a long string to wrap in the IDE? Putting in a return seems to break strings.
The only way I can think to do this in C/C++ is to physically break the strings and use the strcat function to recombine them.
I don't think there is a line continuation syntax within the C language definition that would help.
You can do this…
const char longstring = "aaa" "bbb" "ccc";
but you might make sure to learn about <avr/pgmspace.h> and PROGMEM because otherwise your strings all get copied into SRAM and you don’t have much of that.
Thanks jims - that was easy. I'll put it in the reference section.
