B.3. Files in the home directory

When you run RealView Debugger for the first time, files containing default settings and target configuration details are copied into your RealView Debugger default home directory where you can modify them:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\ARM\rvdebug\version

The files in this directory are:

armreg.sig

An internal settings file that is created or updated each time you run RealView Debugger.

Do not edit this file manually.

exphist.sav

Your personal history file. This file keeps a record of each session and stores your personal favorites, for example watched variables. This file is updated at the end of each debugging session.

rvdebug.aws

Your default workspace settings file. For a new installation, RealView Debugger creates this file when it runs for the first time. By default, this file is updated with the state of the debugger at the end of each debugging session.

rvdebug.brd

Your board file containing target configuration settings. For a new installation, this is a duplicate of the file installed in the default settings directory.

This file references .rbe files and .bcd files.

rvdebug.ini

Specifies global configuration settings used across all workspaces or when working without a workspace. For a new installation, RealView Debugger creates this file when it runs for the first time.

rvdebug.sav

This file specifies how each RealView Debugger session starts. For a new installation, RealView Debugger creates this file the first time you close down after performing an operation. By default, this file is updated at the end of each debugging session.

settings.sav

This file is used to persist various settings when between RealView Debugger sessions.

*.auc

These are RVISS target configuration settings files created when you first run RealView Debugger, for example default.auc.

*.bcd

Board/Chip definition files that you have copied into your home directory from the default settings directory. It is suggested that you do this when you want to create your own versions based on the installed BCD files.

*.smc

These are ISSM and RTSM target configuration settings files created when you first run RealView Debugger, for example ISSM_0.smc.
