My Cup Overflows

When performing math (even basic addition and subtraction) with signed numbers an overflow problem sometimes arises. The Arduino microcontroller indicates the existence of an overflow error by setting the overflow flag in the SREG. Here’s a demonstration of the overflow … Continue reading
