Modified EEPROM library for Arduino

by / Thursday, 07 April 2011 / Published in Arduino

Very often we encounter such situations when we need to save something in EEPROM. Arduino offers functions to save\read only byte values. But what if we need to store another data types, integer for instance? Sure, we need to create a simple function that will store two bytes of integer.

But wouldn't it be more loigical to have these functions integrated to EEPROM library? Thinking like that, I've modified it, and now I'm sharing my results.


For now, there are 4 functions in the library:

  • byte address);
  • int  EEPROM.readInt(int address);
  • void EEPROM.write(int address, byte value);
  • void EEPROM.writeInt(int address, int value);

More functions may be added in future.

Note: when saving\reading integer value, specify the first byte. Second byte (address+1) will also be occupied - automatically.

Download the modified library (v. 001) and replace the existing one with files from zip archive.

2015-04-02 UPDATE: Warning: this library was forked from 2011 one, from Arduino 0022. Arduino 1.0+ chanhed some C++ header files, so you will have to do that as well if you download this legacy version.
