WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Hi,

I am working on Murata1LD board in Wiced-Studio. I need to delete a thread in the application. From the Wiced-APIs the function to delete a thread is

wiced_result_t wiced_rtos_delete_thread(wiced_thread_t *thread). The explanation says this function deletes a terminated thread. Can you please make it clear how to terminate a thread?

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes, you are right. The API to delete a thread is wiced_rtos_delete_thread. It deletes a terminated thread.

You can terminate a thread in three ways:

1. If the thread returns from it's start routine.

2. If it is canceled by some other thread.

3. If it calls pthread_exit() function from within itself. (POSIX thread library is not supported within WICED)

I have attached a sample program to terminate a thread after it's execution get completed. You can also see the terminal snapshot for the UART prints. I have attached two snapshots of the Debug window. One of them shows the thread status before the API call (wiced_rtos_delete_thread) . It shows the status of the thread application thread as "Completed". The other snapshot shows the thread status after the API call. You will see that the thread is deleted.

Thanks
