17.4.3 Putting it All Together

In summary, when your program is ready to debug, you must follow these steps.

  1. Make sure you have defined the supporting low-level routines (see section What You Must Do for the Stub):
     
    getDebugChar, putDebugChar,
    flush_i_cache, memset, exceptionHandler.
    
  2. Insert these lines near the top of your program:
     
    set_debug_traps();
    breakpoint();
    
  3. For the 680x0 stub only, you need to provide a variable called exceptionHook. Normally you just use:
     
    void (*exceptionHook)() = 0;
    

    but if before calling set_debug_traps, you set it to point to a function in your program, that function is called when No value for GDBN continues after stopping on a trap (for example, bus error). The function indicated by exceptionHook is called with one parameter: an int which is the exception number.

  4. Compile and link together: your program, the No value for GDBN debugging stub for your target architecture, and the supporting subroutines.
  5. Make sure you have a serial connection between your target machine and the No value for GDBN host, and identify the serial port on the host.
  6. Download your program to your target machine (or get it there by whatever means the manufacturer provides), and start it.
  7. Start No value for GDBN on the host, and connect to the target (see section Connecting to a Remote Target).
