11.1.5. What happens when a breakpoint is activated?

When a breakpoint activates and program execution stops, RealView Debugger displays a message that identifies the type and location of the breakpoint, for example:

    Stopped at 0x00008490 due to SW Instruction Breakpoint
    Stopped at 0x00008490: DHRY_1\main Line 153

If you specify that execution is to continue after the breakpoint is activated, then these messages are not displayed.

If you want program execution to continue when a breakpoint is activated, and still be informed when this occurs, then:

  1. Either:

    • assign a macro to the breakpoint that outputs appropriate messages and returns a value of zero

    • assign the message action to display an appropriate message.

  2. Assign the continue command qualifier to the breakpoint.
