I have been working on a program to directly transmit any character or set of characters that I transmit from the PC via UART, back to the PC immediately. This is just the first step in my project.

Code (this works):
    while(1) {
        int8_t buffer[20];
        scanf("%s", buffer);
        printf("%s\n", buffer);

Next I want use the value I receive from the PC for some mathematical operations in 'float' data type.

Can anyone please tell me how to covert the value received 'buffer' to a float value?

'Thank You' in advance.
