what is difference between xqueuesend and xqueuesendtobackfromisr

Posted by ephobb on January 24, 2016

Hello, i want to know the difference between xqueuesend and xqueuesendtobackfromisr. I know we use api xqueuesend from normal flow and we use api xqueuesendtobackfromisr, when we are sending data to queue from ISR routine.

But i want to know, how they are differ?

First, xqueuesend and xquesendtoback are aliases for the same function. So the difference you are looking at is the difference between a non-fromisr function and a fromisr function. The major difference between them is that the non-ISR version give you the option to block the task for awhile for the operation to complete if needed, while the ISR versions do not (you DON'T want to delay an ISR execution) but instead give you a flag to let you decide if you need to run the scheduler.

A second internal difference is the way critical sections are implemented. The non-ISR versions use slightly simpler code knowing they aren't in an interrupt context.
