[Event Group API]


 EventBits_t xEventGroupClearBits(
                                 EventGroupHandle_t xEventGroup,
                                 const EventBits_t uxBitsToClear );

Clear bits (flags) within an RTOS event group. This function cannot be called from an interrupt. See xEventGroupClearBitsFromISR() for a version that can be called from an interrupt.

The RTOS source file FreeRTOS/source/event_groups.c must be included in the build for the xEventGroupClearBits() function to be available.

xEventGroup   The event group in which the bits are to be cleared. The event group must have previously been created using a call to xEventGroupCreate().
uxBitsToClear   A bitwise value that indicates the bit or bits to clear in the event group. For example set uxBitsToClear to 0x08 to clear just bit 3. Set uxBitsToClear to 0x09 to clear bit 3 and bit 0.
The value of the event group before the specified bits were cleared.
Example usage:
#define BIT_0	( 1 << 0 )
#define BIT_4	( 1 << 4 )

void aFunction( EventGroupHandle_t xEventGroup )
EventBits_t uxBits;

  /* Clear bit 0 and bit 4 in xEventGroup. */
  uxBits = xEventGroupClearBits(
                                xEventGroup,  /* The event group being updated. */
                                BIT_0 | BIT_4 );/* The bits being cleared. */

  if( ( uxBits & ( BIT_0 | BIT_4 ) ) == ( BIT_0 | BIT_4 ) )
      /* Both bit 0 and bit 4 were set before xEventGroupClearBits()
      was called.  Both will now be clear (not set). */
  else if( ( uxBits & BIT_0 ) != 0 )
      /* Bit 0 was set before xEventGroupClearBits() was called.  It will
      now be clear. */
  else if( ( uxBits & BIT_4 ) != 0 )
      /* Bit 4 was set before xEventGroupClearBits() was called.  It will
      now be clear. */
      /* Neither bit 0 nor bit 4 were set in the first place. */
