portTICK_PERIOD_MS, not portTICK_RATE_MS

Posted by henning larsen on May 24, 2009
Hello,

The configuration parameter portTICK_RATE_MS in portmacro.h has a misleading name.

To reflect its significance, it should be called: portTICK_PERIOD_MS

Rate is a per time value but period is a time value, here ms.
Inaccurate and misleading names should be avoided - especially for those parameters commonly used in applications of FreeRTOS.

Just a suggestion...

regards
Henning
