In avr-libc, strstr_P() is an equivalent of <string.h>-prototyped strstr(), where the second parameter is in FLASH. It's supposed usage is to search a keyword (stored in FLASH) in an incoming buffer (in RAM).

 

On a local forum, somebody asked for a variant of this function where the first parameter is in FLASH, i.e. to search a user-entered token (stored in RAM) in a list of tokens (in FLASH).

 

I have modified strstr_P() into strstr_P2() http://www.efton.sk/tmp/strstr_P... (with some rudimentary usage example - macro.inc and sectionname.h simply copied from avr-libc/common), but I haven't actively programmed AVRs for quite some time.

 

Can somebody please review and perhaps comment?

 

Thanks,
