C++ Synchronization

Overview

The sample project illustrates usage of pure virtual class, member functions with different types of arguments, global objects constructor invocation.

A simple application demonstrates basic sanity of the kernel. The main thread and a cooperative thread take turns printing a greeting message to the console, and use timers and semaphores to control the rate at which messages are generated. This demonstrates that kernel scheduling, communication, and timing are operating correctly.

Building and Running

This kernel project outputs to the console. It can be built and executed on QEMU as follows:

west build -b qemu_x86 samples/cpp_synchronization
west build -t run
