Execution control

List of commands:

start

Sets a temporary breakpoint and starts running the image until it hits the breakpoint. When the debugger stops, the breakpoint is deleted. By default, the breakpoint is set at the address of the global function main().

set blocking-run-control

Controls whether run control operations such as stepping and running are blocked until the target stops or released immediately.

show blocking-run-control

Displays the current setting for blocking run control operations.

set debug-from

Specifies the address of the temporary breakpoint for subsequent use by the start command.

show debug-from

Displays the current setting for the expression that is used by the start command to set a temporary breakpoint.

run

Starts running the target.

continue

Continues running the target.

advance

Sets a temporary breakpoint and continues running the image until it hits the breakpoint. When the debugger stops, the breakpoint is deleted.

finish

Continues running the device to the next instruction after the selected stack frame finishes.

interrupt, stop

Interrupts the target and stops the current application if it is running.

wait

Instructs the debugger to wait until either the application completes or a breakpoint is hit.

reset

Performs a reset on the target.

step

Source level stepping including stepping into all function calls where there is debug information.

stepi

Instruction level stepping including stepping into all function calls.

steps

Source level stepping through statements including stepping into all function calls where there is debug information.

next

Source level stepping over all function calls.

nexti

Instruction level stepping over all function calls.

nexts

Source level stepping through statements but stepping over all function calls.

thread, core

Displays information about the current thread or processor.

thread apply, core apply

Temporarily switches control to a thread or processor to execute a DS-5 Debugger command and then switches back to the original state.

set step-mode

Specifies whether to step into or step over a function with no debug information.

show step-mode

Displays the current step setting for functions without debug information.

handle

Controls the handler settings for one or more signals or exceptions.
