pdPASS or pdTRUE

Posted by Martin Velek on May 25, 2009
I am little bit confused about pdPASS and pdTRUE in the queue API. The documentation says:"pdTRUE if the item was successfully posted, otherwise errQUEUE_FULL.". However in source code is returned:"taskEXIT_CRITICAL(); return pdPASS;".

I understand that currently pdPASS is equal to pdTRUE but in the future?
Can someone give me some hint?
Thank you very much

This is just an inconsistency on part. I tend to use the two interchangable, which is why I define both and define them to be the same thing. They will always be the same.
