5.10. Basic debugging tasks with RealView Debugger

The basic debugging tasks you can perform with RealView Debugger are shown in Table 5.2. The referenced sections give instructions for these tasks.

See chapter that describes working breakpoints in the RealView Debugger v1.8 User Guide for detailed information about using breakpoints.

Because setting a tracepoint is very similar to setting a breakpoint, the use of tracepoints is not described in this section. In addition, the analysis of trace output is too detailed to include in a getting started tutorial. If you want to use the Tracing feature of RealView Debugger, see the chapter that describes tracing with RealView Debugger in the RealView Debugger v1.8 Extensions User Guide.
