11.22. Specifying processor exceptions (global breakpoints)

Where supported by your debug target, RealView Debugger maintains a list of processor exceptions that automatically activate a breakpoint in any application program. These are global breakpoints, that is they apply to processor exceptions and not addresses. During your debugging session you can examine this list and select, or deselect, events that halt the processor.

Note

The available processor exceptions depend on your target.

To specify the processor exceptions that automatically stop execution:

  1. Select Debug → Processor Exceptions... from the Code window main menu to open the Processor Exceptions dialog box. Figure 11.39 shows an example, which lists the processor exceptions for an ARM architecture-based processor connected through RealView ICE.

  2. To modify the processor exceptions that automatically stop execution:

    1. Select the check box of each exception that you want to change.

    2. Click OK to make the selected exceptions active.
