POINTER WATCH PROBLEM IN DEBUGGER

Applies to: uVision IDE

Answer


Information in this article applies to:


QUESTION

If I only define one pointer (for example: unsigned char xdata * ptr) in my program, the debugger just uses DPTR for this pointer. If I set up a watch for this pointer: ws ptr, this ptr shows as value X:0x0000 and can not be monitored correctly via the Watch Window. If I make it global, then it works...but adds a ton of extra code in the process.
