start

This command sets a temporary breakpoint, calls the debugger run command and then deletes the temporary breakpoint. By default, the temporary breakpoint is set at the address of the global function main(). You can use the set debug-from command to change the breakpoint location. If the breakpoint location cannot be found then the breakpoint is set at the image entry point.

Note

Control is returned as soon as the target is running. You can use the wait command to block the debugger from returning control until either the application completes or a breakpoint is hit.

Show/hideSyntax

Where:

args

Specifies the command-line arguments that are passed to the main() function in the application using the argv parameter. The name of the image is always implicitly passed in argv[0] and it is not necessary to pass this as an argument.
