Please, help. Arduino: Saving data to a .something file

Hi guys, please, I need help with making an Arduino program thar saves data that I recieve from a circuit made on a breadboard to a .something file. Please, need your help. Code down below.

#define BINS_SIZE 256
#define CALIBRATION_SIZE 50000

#define NO_BIAS_REMOVAL 0
#define EXCLUSIVE_OR 1
#define VON_NEUMANN 2

#define ASCII_BYTE 0

    bins[i] = 0; 
  }  
}

  int adc_value = analogRead(adc_pin);
  byte adc_byte = adc_value >> 2;

Please look at saveStrings in the reference

Please, tell me where. I don’t know much about code.

Sorry, I don’t have the time

Hey There !

I believe the Arduino IDE is build on C so…

Have a look at this.
Best of luck.
