How to Store a Predefined Dataset in Flash / ROM Possibly a strut?

Hello All -

I need to have menu system so that I can navigate through many different functions and lists.  I want it to be generic using a simple function to be able to display a list of options and then call a function based on what is called.

I have the structure of this mapped out (whether or not its good or bad is for a different thread)  I am tight on RAM and I do not want a potentially 200 element menu system of pointers and identifiers stuffed in RAM.

Is there a way to put a large chunk of Hex directly into flash?  The hex would be in a format that I could point a structure pointer to a point in ROM (the head) and be able to navigate through all my selections?  Is there a menu scheme somewhere that is already done and works well?

Thanks for the help.
