Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)
The RealView Debugger (RVD) Symbols pane (available from the View → Symbols menu) provides easy access to the symbols of your image. From the Symbols pane you can conveniently locate a function, run to a function, add a variable to the watch window and set a breakpoint.
The Symbols pane uses a Filter to select which symbols to display. The filter consists of three parameters - image, module and function. The default filter is "*** " which displays all symbols from all images loaded to RVD. You can hand edit the filter or set it by double-clicking from the Images or Modules tab.
The Symbol browser features the following 4 tabs.
Displays the image(s) loaded to your target. Double-clicking an image brings you to the Modules of that image.
Displays the source files of the selected image. Double-clicking a module brings you to the Functions of that module. Right-clicking allows you to scope to the first function in memory of that module (the function stored at the lowest address in that module).
Displays the functions of the selected module and image. Double-clicking a function scopes to that function in the "Dsm" source window. From the right-click menu you have the option to show or hide public, static, label and library functions. You can also view the disassembly or source code for a function, set a breakpoint on a function entry point, run to a function and set the PC to the function entry point.
Displays the variables of the selected module, image and function. Double-clicking a variable will print the variable value in the "Cmd" tab of Output window. From the right-click menu you have the option to show or hide public, static, label and library variables. You can also add the variable to the watch window and set a watchpoint on accesses to the variable.
