5.1 Examining the target execution environment

During a debug session, you might want to display the value of a register or variable, the address of a symbol, the data type of a variable, or the content of memory. The DS-5 Debug perspective provides essential debugger views showing the current values.

As you step through the application, all the views associated with the active connection are updated. In the perspective, you can move any of the views to a different position by clicking on the tab and dragging the view to a new position. You can also double-click on a tab to maximize or reset a view for closer analysis of the contents in the view.

Alternatively, you can use debugger commands to display the required information. In the Commands view, you can execute individual commands or you can execute a sequence of commands by using a script file.
