Fast string to integer conversion (C/C++)

This article presents a few fast and lightweight implementations of conversion from ASCII string to integer. It can be an interesting fit to use in a small microcontrollers like for example ATtiny13, which resources are very limited. All presented functions are simplified and require a null-terminated array of chars as an argument. Convert string to … Read more

Fast string comparison for microcontrollers (C/C++)

This short article presents trivial but fast and memory efficient function to compare two strings. Function returns “0” (zero) on success (strings are the same), otherwise function returns the position where different characters occurred. Example code #include <stdint.h> #include <assert.h> static int8_t xstrcmp(const char *s1, const char *s2) { while(*s1 != ‘\0’ && *s1 == … Read more
