//Find the length of a char[] C-style string, COUNTING the null terminator at the end of the string too!
//...therefore, this function will only return a value 1 or greater, since if it immediately finds the null terminator it will simply stop and return 1.
unsigned int findStrLen(char* s)
  unsigned int i = 0;
  byte b;
    b = s[i];
  while (b != 0); //keep going until null terminator found at end of string
  return i;
