1.14.1. Types of log and journal files

RealView Debugger enables you to create the following files:

Log files

During your debugging session, you can create a log file containing:

  • all the commands you enter

  • commands that are generated by the RealView Debugger GUI.

You can then use this file as the basis of a command file or a macro. By default, log files have the extension .log or .inc, but you can use any extension.

STDIO log files

A STDIO log file enables you to keep a record of messages sent to STDIO from the target, that is your application. This might be useful for controlling debugging by running scripts without using the RealView Debugger user interface. By default, these files have the extension .log, but you can use any extension.

Journal files

A session journal file that contains all information including:

  • commands you enter

  • commands that are generated by the RealView Debugger GUI

  • any messages displayed in the Output view

  • messages from your application.

By default, journal files have the extension .jou, but you can use any extension.

You can open one or all of these types of file in a debugging session. However, only one file of each type can be open.
