Debugging, no matter if I try this on the hardware (XK-1, XTAG2) or in
the simulator, does not work (most of the time).
(Additionally, I checked the hardware, cleaned it and replaced 2 cracked
capacitors. It "feels" a little more stable now, at least for the hardware part ;)
Most of the time, after setting a breakpoint, the disassembly window
shows up, all the registers, expressions, etc..., appear and contain valid
entries, but hitting F5/6/8 or whatever does nothing but showing up
and nothing further happens...Node 0 XCore 0 Thread 0 (Stepping)
Other (random) message boxes complain about "window is not disposable", "an internal
error occured", "unable to create variable space", and a lot more.
Well, this is not completely reproducible... It's random.If you come across any bugs or crashes in the XDE, you can submit a support ticket on the xmos.com website.
Sometimes it works "for hours" (...), sometimes it happens as soon as I start it...
I had the best results (almost no failures) with a completely new and
handmade set up project. All the other projects before were derived from the examples.
Sounds promising... I'm almost there! 8)
