13.11.2. Examining memory in the Memory view

To examine the contents of memory in the Memory view:

  1. Connect to your target.

  2. Load your image, for example, dhrystone.axf.

  3. Select View → Memory from the Code window main menu to open the Memory view as a floating view. Figure 13.29 shows an example. No memory locations are displayed when you first connect to a target.

  4. Enter the required location in the Start address field of the Memory view toolbar. The tab name changes to the specified start address.


    The Memory view toolbar is displayed by default.

    You can specify the start address as:

    • an address in hexadecimal, for example 0x000088A4

    • a C or C++ expression that RealView Debugger computes to obtain the starting address, for example Int_Glob+64

    • a macro that returns an address, for example thisaddr()

    • any valid expression using constants and symbols.

    You can also use the drop-down arrow to select the start address from values you have entered previously.

    The Memory view is updated. Figure 13.30 shows an example:
