#91275 - He said "alternative"
Responding to: Jez Smith's previous message
Jez Smith said:
Why on earth would you implement a RTOS on an 8052?

In Anil Gupta's defense, he did say "alternative to RTOS".

Protothreads is really merely a set of C macros that (from the documentation) "... utilizes the C switch() statement in a non-obvious way that is similar to Duff's device."

Many of us use the switch/case construct to explicitly implement concurrent state machines in our code. The macros merely provide a level of abstraction above that so that the code appears more linear and the overall logic more visible.
