Scheduling Co-Routines

Co-routines are scheduled by repeated calls to vCoRoutineSchedule(). The best place to call vCoRoutineSchedule() is from the idle task hook. This is the case even if your application only uses co-routines as the idle task will still automatically be created when the scheduler is started. See the later examples.

Mixing Tasks and Co-Routines

Scheduling co-routines from within the idle task allows tasks and co-routines to be easily mixed within the same application. When this is done the co-routines will only execute when there are no tasks of priority higher than the idle task that are able to execute. See the later examples.
