[Task Control]

task. h
BaseType_t xTaskResumeFromISR( TaskHandle_t xTaskToResume );

INCLUDE_vTaskSuspend and INCLUDE_xTaskResumeFromISR must be defined as 1 for this function to be available. See the RTOS Configuration documentation for more information.

A function to resume a suspended task that can be called from within an ISR.

A task that has been suspended by one of more calls to vTaskSuspend() will be made available for running again by a single call to xTaskResumeFromISR().

xTaskResumeFromISR() is generally considered a dangerous function because its actions are not latched. For this reason it should definitely not be used to synchronise a task with an interrupt if there is a chance that the interrupt could arrive prior to the task being suspended, and therefore the interrupt being lost. Use of a semaphore, or preferable a direct to task notification, would avoid this eventuality. A worked example that uses a direct to task notification is provided.

xTaskToResume Handle to the task being readied.

pdTRUE if resuming the task should result in a context switch, otherwise pdFALSE. This is used by the ISR to determine if a context switch may be required following the ISR.
Example usage:

 TaskHandle_t xHandle;

 void vAFunction( void )
     // Create a task, storing the handle.
     xTaskCreate( vTaskCode, "NAME", STACK_SIZE, NULL, tskIDLE_PRIORITY, &xHandle );

     // ... Rest of code.

 void vTaskCode( void *pvParameters )
     // The task being suspended and resumed.
     for( ;; )
         // ... Perform some function here.

         // The task suspends itself.
         vTaskSuspend( NULL );

         // The task is now suspended, so will not reach here until the ISR resumes it.

 void vAnExampleISR( void )
 BaseType_t xYieldRequired;

     // Resume the suspended task.
     xYieldRequired = xTaskResumeFromISR( xHandle );

     if( xYieldRequired == pdTRUE )
         // We should switch context so the ISR returns to a different task.
         // NOTE:  How this is done depends on the port you are using.  Check
         // the documentation and examples for your port.
