I'm trying to parse with tinyxml2 a modest XML (3.4kb) to retrieve some data.
My ESP8266 crashes every time I try to use the
here's my code
// here I'm getting an http request String payload = https.getString(); // checking the payload, it seems fine in console but I get some garbage characters when àèéùìò are printed Serial.println(payload); // Length (with one extra character for the null terminator) int str_len = payload.length() + 1; // Prepare the character array char xml[str_len]; // Copy it over payload.toCharArray(xml, str_len); // there I'll parse xml with tinyxml2 but the MCU crashes before getting here
the length of the string is something around 3900, which I'm not sure can fit this kind of array on this device. If it's the case, what will be a better strategy ?
As you can imagine I'm just starting with the c language :)
https.getString().c_str() + less variables was the right way to save memory
