Microcontroller Programming » makefile eeprom

As much as I've learned to stand on my own two feet and custom make everything from scratch past what the nerdkit has given me I'm still stuck using the standard makefile the kit comes with. And now I need to initialize the eeprom memory through EEMEM variables in my code but having trouble uploading it to micro.

long story short, I need to generate .eep file and send to micro, don't know how to edit the kit's makefile to do that. Any help? I'm using the atmega324p if you need starting addresses or something.

Thank you,

Hi em -

Did you try something like:

-U eeprom:w:eeprom.hex

where eeprom.hex is the upload file?

Other than that, you could write a program that takes values from the UART and stores them to EEPROM. What errors are you getting? Might be a missing header file.
