COS can accept basic commands for debugging and logging. For information about using COS Shell Commands with a terminal emulator, see COS Shell Commands.
The Cafe CPU has three cores. When the application starts, each core starts running from the Cafe Core OS (COS) entry point and is initialized. Then sub-cores (Cores 0 and 2) wait for instructions from the main core on their own default thread. The main core (Core 1) initializes the heap and C++, starts device driver services, and then runs the main function of the application.
After the main function starts running, the main core uses
OSRunThread to start the
default threads on the sub-cores. The pointer to the function for the default thread is specified.
The HelloWorld demo outputs "Hello, World!" on the debug output console.
