Is it possible to suspend tasks before start scheduler

Posted by markwrichardson on April 16, 2014

I was hoping I could create a few tasks and then suspend some of them before starting the scheduler. They would be resumed after initialization. Is this valid?

I can always block them with a flag until the initialized is finished. I like the looks of the former better.

Additionally I'm wondering about adjusting timing or priority while suspended or before scheduler just to complete the discussion. Can tasks be created after the scheduler starts?

You can create a task then suspend it before calling vTaskStartScheduler().
