The NiceMon tool bar provides the user with quick access to the commonly used commands.
Here are the available tool bar actions.
Open: used to load a program to be debugged. Selecting this menu item will open a dialog box prompting the user for a file name. The COP8 Flash is programmed with the application code and the NiceMon debug stub.
Reset: will issue a soft reset and stop at the reset vector.
Stop: will stop a running program.
Run: will continue execution at the current program counter.
Step: will run and stop after one assembly instruction is executed.
Watch: is used to add a watch to the watch area. If debug symbols are loaded NiceMon will prompt the user to select a variable to watch. If debug symbols are not loaded NiceMon will prompt the user for a name and address. NiceMon will then prompt the user for the number of bytes to be watched.
Dump Flash: used to dump 0x50 bytes of flash. The program counter is used as the starting address.
Disassemble: used to disassemble five assembly instructions. The program counter is used as the starting address.
