Waiting On Event - Time Out - Suspend

Posted by John W. on April 28, 2006
Hello Richard,

I was wondering about the following - and if it's possible to suspend in such a way as to make the task startup back at the beginning:


for (;;)

vTaskSuspend(NULL); // 'normal' - gets resumed elsewhere

.do stuff
while ( event != event_complete ) {

if (timeout++ == TIME_OUT) {


.more stuff

} // end task

I guess the problem is that if a timeout occurs - more stuff gets done when the task is resumed - instead of do stuff getting done first.

I don't know if this is possible - but is there a way to suspend that will force the task to resume at the 'top' of the task?

How about, the task creates another copy of itself then deletes itself?

OK - I guess that could work.
