rtapi_task_new — create a realtime task
int rtapi_task_new (void (* taskcode)(void * ), void * arg, int prio, unsigned long stacksize, int uses_fp, char name, int** cpu_id )
int rtapi_task_delete ( int task_id )
A pointer to the function to be called when the task is started
An argument to be passed to the taskcode function when the task is started
A task priority value returned by rtapi_prio_xxxx
A flag that tells the OS whether the task uses floating point or not.
A task ID returned by a previous call to rtapi_task_new
The name argument is used to identify the thread by name at the operating system level.
Corresponds to the HAL name of the thread.
Bind this thread to a particular CPU core.
rtapi_task_new creates but does not start a realtime task.
The task is created in the "paused" state.
To start it, call either rtapi_task_start for periodic tasks, or rtapi_task_resume for free-running tasks.
Call only from within init/cleanup code, not from realtime tasks.
On success, returns a positive integer task ID.
This ID is used for all subsequent calls that need to act on the task.
On failure, returns an RTAPI status code.
