Command Window

The Command window shows generic debug information and allows you to enter debug commands and debug functions to interact with the program.

The syntax generator displays matching commands, options, and parameters. The list of likely commands is reduced to coincide with the typed characters. Use only the CAPITAL letters displayed in the help of the window. The letters can be typed in lower or upper case into the command-line.

By typing B, the syntax generator reduces the list of possible commands.

Further use: bd, be, bk, or bl.
Syntax Generator Example 1
Command options are shown when the typed command is identified clearly.

Further use: read, write, or readwrite
Syntax Generator Example 2
The syntax generator leads through the command entry and helps avoiding errors. Syntax Generator Example 3

Use expressions to view and modify the value of variables, symbols, registers, or memory locations. For example, type the following commands:

Command Effect
R7 = 12 Assign the value 12 to register R7.
CPSR Display the CPSR register.
time.hour Displays the member hour of the time structure.
time.hour++ Increments the member hour of the time structure.
index = 0 Assigns the value 0 to index.

Invoke debug functions by entering the function name along with the function arguments. For example:

Mix_Sine (300,2000)             // your debug function

Debug Function Example


  • To exit long running or hanging functions, position the cursor into the command-line of the window and press ESC.
