Persistent Data Storage in RobotC

Does anyone know if there is a way to save data to the cortex hard drive (or flash storage or whatever it has) instead of having everything in RAM?

ROBOTC does not directly support user programs saving variables or other information to flash memory. What type of data are you trying to store? Perhaps start another thread in one of the community forums and I can point you at an open source library that would do what you need.
