Re: Saving & retreiving a structure in eeprom

2020-06-10 Thread Royce Pereira
Hi,

Sorry, num should be STRU_SIZE.

But that's not the error I'm getting, It's just a typo while pasting a
sample code here.

In my actual code I did use STRU_SIZE (not num).

What is num?

Hi,

The MPU is ATMega8. AVR-GCC version is 9.1.0
I have a structure that I'm trying to save (& retrieve in eeprom).
Furthermore, it is to be saved in an indexed location in the eeprom from 0 to 
29.
The structure is 4 bytes in size. So total 127 bytes are used in EEPROM
//-
#define EEP_START7 //offset in EEPROM where my structure storage starts.

typedef struct
{
   int  temp ;
   unsigned int time ;
} _pgm ;

#define STRU_SIZE(sizeof(_pgm))

_pgm   setPgm ;   //create struct in RAM.
uint16_teepLoc ;   //holds address of EEPROM
uint8_t  index ;  //index to read from in EEPROM...
//--
//save struct from RAM to an indexed location in EEPROM...
void savPgm(char idx)
{
eepLoc = EEP_START + ((uint16_t)idx * STRU_SIZE) ;

eeprom_write_block((const void *), (void *)eepLoc, STRU_SIZE) ;

   return ;
}
//---
//Retreive struct from an indexed location in EEPROM
void getPgm(char idx)
{
   eepLoc = EEP_START + ((uint16_t)idx * STRU_SIZE) ;

   eeprom_read_block((void *), (const void *)eepLoc, num) ;

  return ;
}
//--
int main(void)
{
index = 5 ;

setPgm.temp = 50 ;
setPgm.time = 10 ;

savPgm(index) ;//example  .. save in 6th location in EEPROM;

//Now read the saved struct back from eeprom...

// this reads back correctly.:-
setPgm.temp = eeprom_read_word((const uint16_t *)eepLoc) ; //eepLoc was set 
before.
setPgm.time = eeprom_read_word((const uint16_t *)eepLoc + 1) ;

//But this reads 0x for both elementss. (Why?):-
getPgm(index) ;  //uses block-read function

return 0 ;
}

The getPgm function uses the read block api but retreives garbage(0x);
What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you!
