EEPROM Clear

The microcontroller on the Arduino and Genuino boards have 512 bytes of EEPROM: memory whose values are kept when the board is turned off (like a tiny hard drive).

This example illustrates how to set of all of those bytes to 0, initializing them to hold new information, using the EEPROM.write() function.
