Idle task clean up deleted tasks

Posted by michaeln32 on June 14, 2018

Hi, vTaskDelay remove tasks from ready, suspend, delay, delay overflow, to temination list but the memory of the deleted task (his TCB and stack) is not yet cleaned up.

In idle task (in function prvCheckTasksWaitingTermination()) remove tasks that are listed in the termination list and free the task TCB (only the TCB).

Can you please tell me where the deleted task stack is freed ?
