select on multiple queues

Posted by Dennis Borgmann on August 2, 2012

Is it possible to perform an action similar to a "select" on queues?

My goal is to wait on several queues for data and while doing so not polling the queues with a uxQueueMessagesWaiting in an endless loop, but automatically recognizing, whenever there is new data in one queue of let's say four queues.

Is this possible and if so, how?

Thanks a lot in advance,

This came up a while ago, please refer to the following threads:

The forum search is not great, took me a while to find it as I searched for 'block' instead of 'blocking'

“The forum search is not great,”

... which is why I now host an archive on the FreeRTOS site, which will hopefully be easier to search, although Google takes a while to index the pages and does not index all of them:

Genius.. ‘Blocked’ or ‘block’ - it found it first time.
May I suggest add a note in the FAQ.

Also.. on the forum which at the moment says:
“Due to spam, anonymous posts are no longer permitted. Please register to post.

Something like
