I am using freeRTOS.org version v6.0.0 under Code-Red Suite 3 NXP Edition on an LPC1768.
As part of the download, I also got the rtos.openrtos.viewer_1.0.10.jar and followed the document “OpenRTOS APPLICATION NOTE: #34-185-AN-001 - Installing and Using the OpenRTOS Eclipse Plug-In” to install the plug-in. I then tried to view the Queue Table and Tasks Table. I had success with the Tasks Table but not with the Queue Table; I then noticed that I needed to use the function vQueueAddToRegistry() after the** xQueueCreate()** function, which I did, but the Queue Table still does not show anything. Does anyone know what might be wrong?
In particular, does this plugin work with freeRTOS or is it only for openRTOS?
Further, the application note mentions that a similar method may be followed for semaphores:…"The following description refers only to queue, but is equally applicable to binary semaphores, counting semaphores, mutex type semaphores and recursive semaphores"…. but I see no register function for each of these types of semaphores similar to xQueueAddToRegistry(), so how does one go about registering these semaphores and does the results appear under the Queue Table window as well?
