Can some one explain this behaviour please, i have the following code
byte buffer; byte block; byte len; Serial.setTimeout(60000L) ; // wait until 20 seconds for input from serial // Ask personal data: Family name Serial.println(F("Type text followed by #")); len = Serial.readBytesUntil('#', (char *) buffer, 500) ; // read from serial Serial.print(len); for (byte i = len; i < 250; i++) buffer[i] = '#'; // pad with # Serial.print(len);
This works but if i change the "for" line to any thing higer then 250 it stops working and there is a "buffer out of memory condition)
My question is why can't the for loop say the below as the buffer size is 512?
for (byte i = len; i < 512; i++) buffer[i] = '#';
Am i right in thinking it has something to do with (Char *), i did copy this code from the example ardunio code and was jsut trying to incress the lenth of input it accpeted.
