Undocumented features in FreeRTOS+TCP

Posted by rwt33 on July 9, 2015

Hi guys, Are you able to provide or update the online documentation for some of the extra features in FreeRTOS+TCP, including: - Callback API. Namely ipconfigUSECALLBACKS, FREERTOSSOUDPRECVHANDLER, FTcpUdpHandlert etc - How to indicate network going down from MAC, including FreeRTOS_NetworkDown/FromISR functions

Cheers, Robert

Hi Robert,

You are right, it's time to add documentation about these features. Earlier we thought it would be wise to concentrate on all official functionality: the API's that are conform the BSD socket interface.

The call-back functions are very handy, but they must be used with care because they execute from within the IP-task. Many things are forbidden when called, such as: blocking calls and calling certain +TCP API's.

It is on the TODO list!

Regards, Hein
