unable to create semaphore

Posted by Angel Eyes on September 2, 2008
Hi I am getting some compilation errors when I am trying to create semaphores , like "implicit declaration of function in xQueueCreate" etc

Am I going wrong somewhere , am I not including the right header files ? I am pasting the code below. This is for the Samsung S3C4510 processor, I am able to run simple tasks on it .


#include "S3C4510.h"
/* Standard includes. */
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include "semphr.h"

/* Scheduler includes. */
#include "FreeRTOS.h"
#include "task.h"

/* Demo application includes. */
#include "partest.h"
#include "flash.h"
#include "integer.h"
#include "PollQ.h"
#include "comtest2.h"
#include "semtest.h"
#include "flop.h"
#include "dynamic.h"
#include "BlockQ.h"
#include "serial.h"
int counter = 0 ;
#define mainCHECK_TASK_PRIORITY 3
#define mainCHECK_TASK_PRIORITY1 3

static void vErrorChecks( void *pvParameters );

static void vErrorChecks1( void *pvParameters );
xSemaphoreHandle xSemaphore = NULL ;
void timersetup (void );

int main(void)
{
int i;



xTaskCreate( vErrorChecks, ( signed portCHAR * ) "Check", configMINIMAL_STACK_SIZE, NULL, mainCHECK_TASK_PRIORITY, NULL );
xTaskCreate( vErrorChecks1, ( signed portCHAR * ) "Check1", configMINIMAL_STACK_SIZE, NULL, mainCHECK_TASK_PRIORITY1, NULL );

char * hellostr=" Hi this is mr y here, Starting Scheduler! \n ";
long* paddr=(long*)0x3ffd00c;

for(i=0;i<45;i++)
{
* paddr=hellostr;

}


vSemaphoreCreateBinary( xSemaphore );

vTaskStartScheduler();

return 0;
}



void vErrorChecks( void * pvParameters )
{
for (;;) {
// Task code goes here.
if ( cSemaphoreTake( xSemaphore, 0 ) )
{

int i;
char * hellostr="Running Task T1 \n ";
long* paddr=(long*)0x3ffd00c;

for(i=0;i<20;i++)
{
* paddr=hellostr;

}
cSemaphoreGive( xSemaphore );

}
}
}



void vErrorChecks1( void * pvParameters )
{
for (;;) {
// Task code goes here.
if ( cSemaphoreTake( xSemaphore, 0 ) )
{

int i;
char * hellostr="Running Task T2 \n ";
long* paddr=(long*)0x3ffd00c;

for(i=0;i<20;i++)
{
* paddr=hellostr;

}
cSemaphoreGive( xSemaphore );

}
}
}

Include FreeRTOS.h before semphr.h, then you should be ok.

Coincidentally I updated the code in SVN just yesterday to add in a #error message to inform people of just this problem.

Regards.

Hi Richard,

Thanks , I will try it out . As you can see in the code I had pasted previously, I have created the semaphore in the main function and declared it before main . Will this work ?

Do I need to create a semaphore in a task explicitly ?

Regards
