5.10.9. Managing breakpoints

To display the current breakpoint details:

  1. Select View ? Break/Tracepoints from the default Code window to display the Break/Tracepoints pane, shown in Figure 5.6.

    Figure 5.6. Break/Tracepoints pane

    Break/Tracepoints pane

    This shows the conditional breakpoint you set previously, the address, and the RealView Debugger command used to create it. RealView Debugger has identified the appropriate class of breakpoint, based on your debug target.

    The check box is selected to show that the breakpoint is enabled.

  2. Right-click anywhere on the breakpoint entry, in the Break/Tracepoints pane, to display the Break/Tracepoints menu.

    From here, you can examine the breakpoint, edit or copy it, or disable it so that it is ignored the next time the program runs.

  3. To remove the current breakpoint, right-click on the conditional breakpoint entry and select Clear from the Break/Tracepoints menu.

    The breakpoints list is refreshed after the entry has been removed.

  4. Click the Run button again to complete program execution.

Using CLI commands

You can use CLI commands to create and modify breakpoints. For example, to set the conditional breakpoint shown in Figure 5.6, type:


binstr,when:{Int_Glob==5} \DHRY_2\#81:6

It is not necessary to specify the breakpoint class.

For full details see the BREAK commands in RealView Debugger v1.8 Command Line Reference Guide.
