NAME

rtapi_print, rtapi_print_msg − print diagnostic messages

SYNTAX

void rtapi_print(const char *fmt, ...)

void rtapi_print_msg(int level, const char *fmt, ...)

typedef void(*rtapi_msg_handler_t)(msg_level_t level, const char *msg);

void rtapi_set_msg_handler(rtapi_msg_handler_t handler);

rtapi_msg_handler_t rtapi_get_msg_handler(void);

ARGUMENTS

level

A message level: One of RTAPI_MSG_ERR, RTAPI_MSG_WARN, RTAPI_MSG_INFO, or RTAPI_MSG_DBG.

handler

A function to call from rtapi_print or rtapi_print_msg to actually output the message.

fmt, ...

Other arguments are as for rtapi_vsnprintf(3rtapi).

DESCRIPTION

rtapi_print and rtapi_print_msg work like the standard C printf functions, except that a reduced set of formatting operations are supported. Notably, formatting long-long values is not supported, and formatting floating-point values has different behavior than standard printf.

Depending on the RTOS, the default may be to print the message to stdout, stderr, a kernel log, etc. In RTAPI code, the action may be changed by a call to rtapi_set_msg_handler. A NULL argument to rtapi_set_msg_handler restores the default handler. rtapi_msg_get_handler returns the current handler. When the message came from rtapi_print, level is RTAPI_MSG_ALL.

rtapi_print_msg works like rtapi_print but only prints if level is less than or equal to the current message level.

REALTIME CONSIDERATIONS

rtapi_print and rtapi_print_msg May be called from user, init/cleanup, and realtime code. rtapi_get_msg_handler and rtapi_set_msg_handler may be called from realtime init/cleanup code. A message handler passed to rtapi_set_msg_handler may only call functions that can be called from realtime code.

RETURN VALUE

None.
