force context switch

Posted by Breno Pinheiro on February 17, 2008
At every tick (1ms) on system the scheduler routine is executed, right? When I call taksYIELD() even if the 1ms hasn't elapsed yet, a scheduler is executed so that a new ready thread start you execution, right? I mean, when taskYIELD() is called a context switch is done whether a tick is achieved or not, is that correct?

Thank you,

Yes - that is correct.
