I've created an S32DS Application project and added to it the FreeRTOS component. The RTOS is never started. In the main.c file there are the following lines:
/*** RTOS startup code. Macro PEX_RTOS_START is defined by the RTOS component. DON'T MODIFY THIS CODE!!! ***/
PEX_RTOS_START(); /* Startup of the selected RTOS. Macro is defined by the RTOS component. */
Unlike what the comment says there is no PEX_RTOS_START defined in any place I could find. When I looked on the FreeRTOS example program (freertos_s32k148) it defines PEX_RTOS_START in the main.c file and points it to a function in the project (in rtos.c).
I've defined it to the function that starts the scheduler and it works fine, but this comment is misleading.
