How to find out if FreeRTOS scheduler running

Posted by znatok on October 18, 2013

Hi, I have a task that should run before and after FreeRTOS scheduler is running. Before scheduler it just makes p[olling and after scheduler it uses Semaphore. What is the most simple way to query if scheduler is running? In other words if call to vTaskStartScheduler(); was made or not? I can arrange global flag:

main() { FreeRTOSrunning=0; ... ... ... FreeRTOSrunning=1; vTaskStartScheduler(); }

But I wander if there is any internal flag or variable that can be used same way.
