wifi headache issue with const char * (SOLVED)

Postby mikronauts » Sun Nov 24, 2019 12:22 am

problem:

I need to attach to different AP's so the requirement for const char * for ssid and password is making using the Arduino ide impossible.

Later I will move to the IDF but the Arduino IDE is much faster than the IDF.

does anyone have any suggestions?

I have already tried different ways of casting, and also tried

const char *ssid, *sspw;

and pointing them to my char arrays, but it did not work... I suspect due to different handling of const (presumably flash arrays) vs array in ram.

nvs would be an ideal solution if it would only return a const char * to the value.
