How do I get access to the configuration variables (eg, standby_enabled etc) using a micropython scripts. Also how do I commit the variable changes to flash?
Use the machine class. Methods config (AT+S.SCFG-like), config_store (AT+S.WCFG), config_reset (AT+S.FCFG)
How did you know this command existed. I can not find any documentation that called out these methods. I've look on the upython wiki and the ST site. All I can find is the AN4964 document which doesn't have these methods called out. I would like to do some other things but I don't know what is available and I would like to explore using the SWPF04 chip as a hostless part.
You can use the TAB key within the REPL mode to get auto-completion and the list of supported methods
