A.2.1. Asm_type

When an assembler source file opens, RealView Debugger decides what type of processor is in use. However, the processor type is unknown if there are no active connections.

In this case, RealView Debugger does not know the format of instructions and so cannot define source coloring rules. Therefore, if you open a source file when no connections are established, RealView Debugger displays a selection box where you can specify the processor type.

You can prevent this dialog box being displayed, and force RealView Debugger to use specific source coloring rules. To do this, change Asm_type to specify a default processor type on start-up. Set to ARM for ARM architecture-based source code.

Saving a change to this setting takes immediate effect on new assembler source files that you subsequently open.
