4.9.1. How to explicitly unload an image

You can unload an image by using the Process Control pane. To do this:

  1. Select View → Process Control from the default Code window main menu.

    If you have still have the default panes visible in the Code window, as shown in Figure 3.1, then the Registers pane is replaced by the Process Control pane.

  2. Right-click on the Image entry, for example dhrystone.axf, or on the Load entry, Image+Symbols, to display the Image context menu.

  3. Select Unload.

Alternatively, in the Process Control pane click on the check box associated with the Load entry so that it is not selected.


Unloading an image does not affect target memory. It unloads the symbols and removes most of the image details from RealView Debugger. However, the image name is retained.

To remove image details completely, right-click on the Image entry in the Process Control pane and select Delete Entry.
