  2. Enable memory mapping.

  3. Select View → Memory Map Tab from the Code window main menu to open the Process Control view and bring the Memory Map tab to the front. Figure 9.3 shows an example:

Colored icons are used to show the type of memory defined.

With an image loaded, the Memory Map tab is updated from details in the image itself. The memory map is also automatically updated if any registers change that affect memory mapping.
