Immediate self-notification handling

Recommended Posts

I am using a FIFO in my design and in some cases I need to push back the slightly modified content to the FIFO.

 I understand that sending immediate self-notification  should be avoided. To do so, I modified the sample FIFO code as

     void write(FIFO_t* c) {
       if (num_elements == max)

       data[(first + num_elements) % max] = c;
       ++ num_elements;
//       wait(SCTIME_CLOCKTIME); // Avoid immediate notification

In the combination shown above,  I receive no warning. However, when I define the notification time by the wait() (now commented out)  and notify() brackets are empty, I receive the warning

Warning: (W536) immediate self-notification ignored as of IEEE 1666-2011:

My guess was that the two cases are equivalent. What is the difference? Maybe only the syntax is checked and not the time difference?

No, they are not equivalent. They notify different events:

wait ( time ); // notify active thread == self-notification

FIFO_write_event.notify (time); // notify FIFO_write_event
