Coroutine Stack Choices

Posted by John W. on May 12, 2006

I applaud your addition of Co-Routines to FreeRTOS.

Is there a way to choose 'which' stack is used for a co-routine?

Some targets have one assigned stack space plus the task stacks. In order to save memory - either the 'system' stack or the task stacks would have to be reused - I was just wondering if there's a way to do this. I took a quick look at the docs and examples - I know you've said 'more to come' as far as co-routines are concerned.

Currently all the co-routines have to execute in within the same task, and will use the stack of that task. If you can assign the stack of that task to memory area you require then the co-routines will use it. It is not too flexible so far.

I know it's a work in progress - and it'll only get better.
