QUESTION

I have a complex project that consists of several applications. When I set breakpoints, the uVision debugger forgets the settings. Is there a way that uVision remembers old breakpoint settings?

ANSWER

Yes. The LOAD command in uVision has an INCREMENTAL option that adds debug information to the symbol table (instead of replacing it). When you use LOAD file INCREMENTAL, the Debugger will remember the breakpoint settings.

Typically, you would use a Debugger Initialization (INI) file that contains all the load commands. The INI file, which is specified in uVision under Options for Target — Debug — Initilziation File, should have the following commands:

load MyApp1 incremental
load MyApp2 incremental
load MyApp3 incremental
