Tracepoint Intrinsics

Tracepoint intrinsics are function-like commands to define the type of a tracepoints in a more convenient manner. Use the intrinsics from the command line. Tracepoint intrinsics cannot be nested. All intrinsics start and end with an underscore. Intrinsics are part of the tracepoint command and cannot be executed as standalone. The general form is:

_intrinsicName_(address expression [, address length])


address expression A symbol or plain constant that resolves to an address.
address length Optional parameter; must be separated with a comma (,).

The following intrinsics are available:

Intrinsic Name Description
_codeacc_ Define a tracepoint for accessing a memory range to fetch instructions for code execution.
_readacc_ Define a tracepoint for reading from an address range.
_writeacc_ Define a tracepoint for writing to an address range.
_readwriteacc_ Define a tracepoint for reading or writing to an address range.


TAP  _writeacc_(AD_last)              // Trace all write accesses to AD_last
TH   _codeacc_(0x1400)                // Halt the trace when PC reaches address 0x1400
TDP  _readwriteacc_(0x8000,0xFF)      // Trace all read and write accesses to the memory
                                      // range starting at address 0x8000 with the length 0xFF
TS   _readacc_(0x8000,0xFF) == 10     // Suspend trace when value 10 is read from an element
                                      // in the address range of 0x8000 - 0x80FF
