[Co-Routine Specific]

void vCoRoutineSchedule( void );

Run a co-routine.

vCoRoutineSchedule() executes the highest priority co-routine that is able to run. The co-routine will execute until it either blocks, yields or is preempted by a task. Co-routines execute cooperatively so one co-routine cannot be preempted by another, but can be preempted by a task.

If an application comprises of both tasks and co-routines then vCoRoutineSchedule should be called from the idle task (in an idle task hook).

Example usage:

    void vApplicationIdleHook( void )
        vCoRoutineSchedule( void );

Alternatively, if the idle task is not performing any other function it would be more efficient to call vCoRoutineSchedule() from within a loop as:

    void vApplicationIdleHook( void )
        for( ;; )
            vCoRoutineSchedule( void );
