FreeRTOS+TCP is still in the lab
FreeRTOS+TCP is already used in commercial products and we encourage you to try it yourself. Be aware however that we are still refining its design, and the source code and documentation do not yet meet Real Time Engineers Ltd's strict quality standards.
Please use the forum for support, feedback and ideas, or contact us directly if you have a specific business interest.


[FreeRTOS+TCP API Reference]

void FreeRTOS_FD_SET( Socket_t xSocket, SocketSet_t xSocketSet, BaseType_t xSelectBits );

Add a socket to a socket set, and set the event bits of interest for the added socket. A socket can only be a member of one set at any time.

ipconfigSUPPORT_SELECT_FUNCTION must be set to 1 in FreeRTOSIPConfig.h for FreeRTOS_FD_SET() to be available.

Socket Sets allow an application RTOS task to block on multiple sockets simultaneously.

To use a socket set:

  1. Create a socket set by calling FreeRTOS_CreateSocketSet(). A socket set is equivalent to the Berkeley sockets fd_set type.

  2. Add one or more sockets to the set using calls to FreeRTOS_FD_SET(). FreeRTOS_FD_SET() is equivalent to the Berkeley sockets FD_SET() macro.

  3. Call FreeRTOS_Select() to test the sockets in the set to see if any of the sockets have an event pending.

  4. If FreeRTOS_select() returns a non-zero value then check all sockets in the set using a call to FreeRTOS_FD_ISSET() to determine which events are pending.

The event bits of interest are set using the xSelectBits parameter, which can take a bitwise OR combination of one or more of the following values:

eSELECT_READ For a socket that is reading data, the eSELECT_READ event will be pending in a socket as long as the socket contains unread data.

For a socket that is listening for new connections, the eSELECT_READ event will be pended each time a new connection is received.

eSELECT_WRITE The eSELECT_WRITE event will remain pending as long as the socket has space for writing.

If a TCP socket is actively connecting to a pear the eSELECT_WRITE event will be triggered as soon as the connection is established.

One the eSELECT_WRITE event has been pended it should either be disabled, or the caller should write enough data to the socket so as to completely fill up the transmit buffer - otherwise the pending eSELECT_WRITE event will not be cleared.

eSELECT_EXCEPT The eSELECT_EXCEPT event will become pending if the socket gets disconnected.

The FreeRTOS_FD_CLR() API function is used to clear event bits or remove a socket from a socket set.


xSocket   The socket being added to the set.

xSocketSet   The socket set to which the socket is being added.

xSelectBits   The events that will cause the socket to unblock a call to FreeRTOS_select(). See the table above for valid values.



Example usage:

See the example on the FreeRTOS_select() documentation page.
