[ECOS] Re: RÃ©f. : Twothreads.c without cyg_thread_delay

Timeslicing is enabled by default in eCos kernel.
This is what I'm interested, to see two threads of
same priority working. Using cyg_thread_delay doesn't
mean much advantage over infinite loops because the
tasks can be very long in working time before it
reaches cyg_thread_delay. Its just a cooperative
multitasking. Timeslicing is the reason I must use
RTOS. If timeslicing is not working, then eCos is not
a true RTOS. Anyone tested timeslicing?

Excuse me but with your explanations, it's looks like
you did not manage properly the threads priorities.
It's just a problem of Real time OS.
If your 2 threads had the same priority, and Thread_1
never "give the hand" to the kernel, the Thread 2 will
never run. Ã¢ÂÂ¦Except if you configure the timeSlicing
option in your kernel. ( never done at this moment).
By using a cyg_thread_delay function, we said to the
kernel to stop the current Thread ( Thread 1 ) and to
run the Thread 2 ( or the thread who have the higtest
priority after the Thread1).
By setting the timeslicing option, the kernel will
commute between the 2 threads every x ms ( depending
of your kernel configuration) even if threads have the
same priority. (but not experimented yet).

Objet : Twothreads.c without cyg_thread_delay
Today I started twothreads.c application, but I
replaced printf(not working yet on my platform) with
leds. My question is, without the cyg_thread_delay, is
it possible to run concurrently the two threads?
Because if I comment this function, only one task is
running, I can see that only one led is turn on and
