Compiling FreeRTOS v8.1.2 in MDK-ARM (Keil v5)

Posted by qyw on October 8, 2014

I have met some issue: ........FreeRTOSV8.1.2portableRVDSARM_CM4Fportmacro.h(151): error: #18: expected a ")" error: token is not a valid binary operator in a preprocessor subexpression.

The solution was to change line 96 in FreeRTOSConfig.h: #define configMAXPRIORITIES ( ( unsigned portBASETYPE ) 8 ) #define configMAX_PRIORITIES 8 I think it is not good idea to do so. Does anybody have nice solution?

This is presumably because the constant is used in a pre-processor directive, and the pre-processor directive does not understand the casting. It is best just to remove the casting from the constants definition in this case (as you have done).
