using console with micrium ?

Honored Contributor II



I am beginner with Micrium uc/os , so my question might be sound trivial for others, excuse me for that. 

We have a requirement to be able to flash program when running uc/os. 

I just wander how it generally should be done with uc/os. 

As far as I read uc/cos does not have a shell (like linux/dos). 

Does it mean I need to create some thread with user-menu, or a thread listening for file transfers (kermit/xmodem) ? 


I tried to read some uc/os documentation, yet haven't grasped how this is generally done with uc/os. 


Thank for your ideas,

Yes you need to write your own listener if you want to have a console or a protocol handler.
