  1. I'm attempting to parse a byte/char array that contains the following data cmd=led&color=red&state=on This data is made available to me in a callback function whose signature looks like this. void callback(char* topic, byte* payload, unsigned int length) { The payload parameter is the one that holds the data I'm interested in. I've tried various ways to parse this string and I've been unsuccessful (I mean besides shear brute force and tons of memory allocations). I eventually resorted with coding a test harness using Visual Studio and C/C++ and I get it where it works but then when I move it to Energia/Code Composer Studio it doesn't work. Also, I'm not sure if what I have is the right/best way to do this. Here is my C/C++ code that works in Visual Studio. Known issues 1. payload variable is declared as a char* while the actual payload parameter is a byte* so I'm not sure how to get past that. I'm guess I can cast the byte* to a char*? 2. I know the strtok function modifies the original. So I need to use something else. Not sure what #include "stdafx.h" #include <string.h> #include <stdio.h> enum Command { Led, Motor, Servo, Ligth }; enum LedColor { red, green, blue }; enum LedState { on, off }; typedef struct RemoteCommand { Command command; LedColor ledColor; LedState ledState; }; char* getValuePart(char* str); bool startsWith(const char *pre, const char *str); int main() { const char parameterDelimiter[2] = "&"; char payload[] = "cmd=led&color=red&state=off"; RemoteCommand remoteCommand; char *token = strtok(payload, parameterDelimiter); if (startsWith(token, "cmd")) { char* separator = strchr(token, '='); if (separator != NULL) { ++separator; } // Parse the LED Command if (strstr(token, "led") != NULL) { remoteCommand.command = Command::Led; // Parse the Color attribute token = strtok(NULL, parameterDelimiter); if (startsWith(token, "color")) { if (strstr(token, "red") != NULL) remoteCommand.ledColor = LedColor::red; else if (strstr(token, "green") != NULL) remoteCommand.ledColor = LedColor::green; else if (strstr(token, "blue") != NULL) remoteCommand.ledColor = LedColor::blue; } // Parse the State attribute token = strtok(NULL, parameterDelimiter); if (startsWith(token, "state")) { if (strstr(token, "on") != NULL) remoteCommand.ledState = LedState::on; else if (strstr(token, "off") != NULL) remoteCommand.ledState = LedState::off; } } } return(0); } char* getValuePart(char* str) { char* color = strchr(str, '='); if (color != NULL) { ++color; } return color; } bool startsWith(const char *str, const char *pre) { return strncmp(pre, str, strlen(pre)) == 0; } Any suggestions to improve this code (less memory allocation, more efficient etc.) are most welcome.
