19  This directive can be used to
21  * get the pending events of the calling task, or
23  * receive events.
25  To **get the pending events** use the constant ${pending-events:/name} for
26  the ``${.:/params[0]/name}`` parameter.  The pending events are returned to
27  the calling task but the event set of the task is left unaltered.  The
28  ``${.:/params[1]/name}`` and ``${.:params[2]/name}`` parameters are ignored
29  in this case.  The directive returns immediately and does not block.
31  To **receive events** you have to define an input event condition and some
32  options.  The **option set** specified in ``${.:/params[1]/name}`` defines
34  * if the task will wait or poll for the events, and
36  * if the task wants to receive all or any of the input events.
38  The option set is built through a *bitwise or* of the option constants
39  described below.
41  The task can **wait** or **poll** for the events.
43  * **Waiting** for events is the default and can be emphasized through the use
44    of the ${../../option/if/wait:/name} option.  The ``${.:/params[2]/name}``
45    parameter defines how long the task is willing to wait.  Use
46    ${../../type/if/no-timeout:/name} to wait potentially forever, otherwise
47    set a timeout interval in clock ticks.
49  * Not waiting for events (**polling**) is selected by the
50    ${../../option/if/no-wait:/name} option.  If this option is defined, then
51    the ``${.:/params[2]/name}`` parameter is ignored.
53  The task can receive **all** or **any** of the input events specified in
54  ``${.:/params[0]/name}``.
56  * Receiving **all** input events is the default and can be emphasized through
57    the use of the ${../../option/if/event-all:/name} option.
59  * Receiving **any** of the input events is selected by the
60    ${../../option/if/event-any:/name} option.

70notes: |
71  This directive shall be called by a task.  Calling this directive from
72  interrupt context is undefined behaviour.
74  This directive only affects the events specified in ``${.:/params[0]/name}``.
75  Any pending events that do not correspond to any of the events specified in
76  ``${.:/params[0]/name}`` will be left pending.
78  To receive all events use the event set constant ${all-events:/name} for the
79  ``${.:/params[0]/name}`` parameter.  Do not confuse this event set constant
80  with the directive option ${../../option/if/event-all:/name}.
82  A task can **receive all of the pending events** by calling the directive
83  with a value of ${all-events:/name} for the ``${.:/params[0]/name}``
84  parameter and the bitwise or of the ${../../option/if/no-wait:/name} and
85  ${../../option/if/event-any:/name} options for the ``${.:/params[1]/name}``
86  parameter.  The pending events are returned and the event set of the task is
87  cleared.  If no events are pending then the
88  ${../../status/if/unsatisfied:/name} status code will be returned.
