Mutex missing reference to configUSE_MUTEXES on the online documentation


Maybe it’s nothing for a someone that has been using FreeRTOS for a long and has understood its work flow, however for the novice FreeRTOS enthusiast it could be an issue:

While working with mutex’es (starting from here) I didn’t find anywhere on the online documentation a mention to the fact that the constant configUSE_MUTEXES must be set to 1 in order to use such feature (and configUSE_RECURSIVE_MUTEXES set to 1 for recursive mutex’es as well) as you’ve done it thoroughly through the online documentation for other kernel features.

Greetings! :smiley:

Thank you for the feedback. We will update it.
