B.2. Files in the default settings directory

When you first run RealView Debugger after installation, files containing default settings and target configuration details are copied to your default settings directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\userID\Local Settings\Application Data\ARM\rvdebug\version\shadowbase\etc

The files in the default settings directory are:

armul.var

A list of RealView ARMulator® ISS (RVISS) variants used by RealView Debugger.

You can edit this file to add your own variants of the RVISS models.

pARM*.prc

Processor-specific information files used to define support for emulators and simulators, for example pARM.prc or pARM_RVI.prc.

Do not edit these files manually.

rvdebug.brd

The default board file used to contain target configuration settings. This file references .bcd and any Debug Interface configuration files, such as *.rvc.

rvdebug.tpl

Template file used to contain standard templates. You can edit these files for use in source files.

targ_*.aco

Processor-specific instruction format files used by RealView Debugger to color assembler code in the File Editor, for example targ_ARM.aco.

Do not edit this file manually.

template.spr

Send a Problem Report (SPR) template used by RealView Debugger.

Do not edit this file manually.

*.bcd

Board/Chip definition files supplied by hardware manufacturers.

If you want to make changes to these files, copy them into your default home directory, rename them to distinguish the copies from the originals, and edit your copies using the Connection Properties window, for example CM940T.bcd.

*.rvc

Configuration files for RealView ICE connections. You change the contents of one of these files when you modify the configuration of a RealView ICE connection using the RVConfig dialog box.

Do not edit these files manually.

*.smc

Configuration files for Instruction Set System Model (ISSM) and Real-Time System Model (RTSM) connections. You change the contents of these files when you modify the configuration of an ISSM or RTSM connection using the Model Configuration Utility dialog box.

*.stp

RealView Debugger internal template files containing debugger defaults. These are used as internal support files or as template files for settings. For example, they are used to define options such as workspace settings, for example aws.stp.

Do not edit these files manually.

For a new installation, some of these files are copied into your RealView Debugger default home directory when the debugger runs for the first time.
