1.2. Using the documentation suite

The other books that make up the RealView Debugger documentation suite are:

At the front of each book is a Preface describing how the contents are organized and how information is presented in the chapters. The following description explains how you might use the books:

  1. For a comprehensive description of the debugging features available in RealView Debugger, see RealView Debugger v1.8 User Guide. This describes, in detail, how to debug your images and how to configure RealView Debugger to customize your working environment. This book also contains examples of debugging software and details shortcuts, and tips, for the developer.


    The RealView Debugger v1.8 User Guide also contains information for developers using RealView Debugger on non-Windows platforms. See Appendix B RealView Debugger for Sun Solaris and Red Hat Linux for details.

  2. RealView Debugger uses projects to save your list of files, understand your build model, and maintain a record of your project-level preferences. A project also enables RealView Debugger to save, and load automatically, specified debugging states, for example breakpoints. See RealView Debugger v1.8 Project Management User Guide for a full description of project management in RealView Debugger.

  3. RealView Debugger v1.8 Target Configuration Guide describes how to connect to targets, how to amend existing targets that are set up in the base product, and how to customize your own targets. It also describes how to create the files required to program Flash.

  4. If you want to use the RealView Debugger Command Line Interface (CLI) to control your debugging tasks, RealView Debugger v1.8 Command Line Reference Guide provides a detailed description of every CLI command and includes examples of their use.

  5. If you have the appropriate licenses, you can access RealView Debugger extensions, for example multiprocessor debugging mode. These features are described in RealView Debugger v1.8 Extensions User Guide.
