problem with COSMIC compiler

Posted by Christian Gaertner on May 13, 2010
I am trying to use the HCS12 Metrowerks example with the COSMIC compiler. I have made all adaptions to meet the compiler specific extentions (like _asm instead of __asm ...) so I see no problems till this point.
But when I try to call the xTaskCreate macro the compiler throws the incompatible argument type and points to the first argument which is the task function.
The task function is declared as static void xTask(void * pParam), like in the example for the Metrowerks compiler. No I tried to cast the function with (pdTASK_CODE) but this produces only the same error message.

Can the error be in the typedef of pdTASK_CODE ? Do I have to change this typedef?

Thanks in advance,

I have never used the Cosmic compiler, but I would think it strange if you had to change the typedef because it is just standard C.

Could the problem be caused by the definition of the portTASK_FUNCTION_PROTO() and portTASK_FUNCTION() macros?
