in reply to rpozz:
We are used to the fact that we wait for a SWI to end before continuing the program but I don't know if you ever worked with the APEX card from Millipede. It has an ARM processor on board and when calling a SWI from the RiscPC, you can decide if you wait for the SWI to end or not (or was it the SWI deciding it?)
On the other hand, calling a SWI would be a good time to swap tasks.
In reply to Douglas:
In interrupts you allways have to provide appropriated locking mechanisms so no difference here.
Organizer not forgotten, says publisher Registered users of popular life management software Organizer have been assured that development of the program is on-going, reports Steve Potts. Nigel Willmott, who took over as Organizer publisher a while ago, said a programmer was "hard at work on a new version of Organizer for release soon", and called for users to send in their feature suggestions or offer to become beta testers.
