For example, a dividebyzero exception will be thrown a software interrupt is requested if the processor executes a divide instruction with divisor equal to zero. For this reason, the driver must indicate to the soft interrupt handler that it should do work before triggering the soft interrupt. In the example code, the state of port c is recorded each time an interrupt occurs and the value is stored as a command. The ability for the user to assign each interrupt source to one of seven priority levels means that the user can give an interrupt with a low natural order priority a very high overall priority level. For example if the software sets the basepri to 3, then requests with level 0, 1, and 2 can interrupt, while requests at levels 3 and higher will be postponed. Firstly a single class enables code to be shared between multiple. To do this, we must pick an interrupt that is called quite often. One way to make this process easier is to employ interrupt vector tables, using c s ability to take a pointer to a function.
