Flash Storage Example

This example presents the functionality of the Experimental: Flash Storage library.

Two example projects are available for each supported board: with and without the SoftDevice.

After starting the example, it writes 0xBADC0FFE to the address 0x3e000. If the SoftDevice is present, it also writes 0xDEADBEEF to the address 0x3e100.

The example writes "hello world" to address 0x3f000.

This example uses the Command Line Interface library to receive user input and to display information about the result and status of the operations.
