Well what I'd like to do is calibrate my sensors using this lcd. So I'd like to be able to do something like:
int sensor_val = 224;
lcd_puts("Sensor value = ");
Where the output would be "Sensor value = 224."
Obviously that will just print the ascii character associated with 224, but I'm trying to find something that will display the actual value of the variable. Maybe some sort of escape sequence to include a variable with the lcd_puts() function?
Or, using the method you posted, my problem would be simplified to creating a string containing the value of my variable.
