Hi every one ,

I need a help how to compare the Usart receive data with constant String...

CODE:
 
char *data=USARTReadData();
if(strcmp(data,"Start")==0)
     {
     PORTCbits.RC4 = 0;
         }
  else
      {
          PORTCbits.RC4 = 1;
        }
 


the Port doesn't get toggled..

can you provide code for "USARTReadData();" I doubt it will be returning you a string. from first thought I believe it should just return a character not a string.

char USARTReadData()
{
    char data;

    //Check if q is empty
    if(UQFront==-1)
	return 0;

    data=URBuff[UQFront];

    if(UQFront==UQEnd)
    {
        //If single data is left
	//So empty q
	UQFront=UQEnd=-1;
    }
    else
    {
	UQFront++;

	if(UQFront==RECEIVE_BUFF_SIZE)
            UQFront=0;
    }

    return data;
}

The first problem is that USARTReadData() returns a char or 0 (NULL)
and you use it as a char * , the address of a string.
I'm surprised you have not had errors of some sort.

What system are you writing for ?

I am not sure you've solved it or not but "USARTReadData" only returns a byte not a string. so you first need to store data into a buffer until you get a \r or \n. for e.g.
 char buffer[30];
char I, ch;

I = 0;
do {
    ch = USARTReadData();
    if ((ch == '\r') || (ch == '\n')) {
        buffer[I++] = '\0';
        break;
    }
    if (I == 29)  {
        buffer[I] = '\0';
        break;
    }
} while (1);
// Now you buffer has received a string you can process it as you want

hello! newbie here. i am kind of a guy who hates using ready - made existing libraries, so this helped a lot as i was trying to control and write to a character lcd display. however, i can't figure out how to set the cursor position. for example, i want to set it to the 5th column in the first row, so position 5. so according to the table, i am sending 10000101 on the 8 data lines of the lcd (register select pulled low). the cursor does not move there however. and i cant move the cursor left or right too. is it something wrong that i am doing? thank you.
