4.5.2. Enabling semi-hosting and VFP

The Semi-Hosting checkbox enables you to turn on semihosting, a mechanism that captures I/O requests made by code running on the target system and communicates these to the host system for handling. If semi-hosting is enabled, the Heap Base, Limit, and Stack Base fields are also active. Enter memory addresses in these fields to dictate the start of the heap and the stack and the maximum size to which the heap can grow.

By default, the vector floating point unit is supported if the model provides support for it, but you can disable this support by deselecting the VFP Enabled checkbox.

The Arguments field enables you to pass command line arguments to the specified ARM executable. Enter them here exactly as you would on the command line.
