InterruptEnable()

Enable hardware interrupts

Synopsis:

#include <sys/neutrino.h>

void InterruptEnable( void );

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The InterruptEnable() function enables all hardware interrupts. You can call it from a thread or from an interrupt handler. Before calling this function, the thread must:

  • have the PROCMGR_AID_IO ability enabled. For more information, see procmgr_ability().
  • request I/O privileges by calling:
    ThreadCtl( _NTO_TCTL_IO, 0 );
    

If the thread doesn't do these things, it might SIGSEGV when it calls InterruptEnable().

You should call this function as quickly as possible after calling InterruptDisable().

Use InterruptLock() and InterruptUnlock() instead of InterruptDisable() and InterruptEnable(). The InterruptLock() and InterruptUnlock() functions perform the intended function on SMP hardware, and allow your interrupt thread to run on any processor in the system.
