Probably problem withxHigherPriorityTaskWoken

Posted by ulmus on February 15, 2012
Quick question:
im using that variable "xHigherPriorityTaskWoken' in interrupt routine, you know what i am talking about.
Can i declare that outside routine as a global variable?
I dont know yet, but i think it is making some problems... i want only be sure that i can declare as global variable.

If no other interrupts use the same variable, or you can never have interrupts that nest, then it can be global. If it is global it must be set to pdFALSE manuall when the interrupt starts.

It means i have an issue with semaphores and task timings... :(
