configTOTAL_HEAP_SIZE on AT91SAM7S64 port

Posted by Eduardo Goncalves on March 13, 2009
Hi :)

Does anyone know why in FreeRTOSConfig.h a large heap is declared?

#define configTOTAL_HEAP_SIZE( ( size_t ) 14200 )

14200 bytes of heap seems to be a lot. Also some sort of magical number!

thanks

The task stack is also built in this heap, so it's large.
