Differences between counting semaphore and binary semaphore

What are the differences between counting semaphore and binary semaphore?

E

Expert

Verified

Binary semaphore:

While the value of binary semaphore is one this is assumed that no task has taken this and that this has been released. While the value is 0 this is assumed that this has been taken.

Counting semaphore:

It is a semaphore that can be taken and specified number of times. This semaphores are unsigned integers.
