The ICE-Cube comes
complete with a versatile source-level debugger, SDEBUG. This Turbo-debug-like windowing
program provides all of the windows, views, and functions necessary to debug even the most
complex and largest of programs. The award-winning Borland International Turbo Debug
inspired many of the concepts in SDEBUG. SDEBUG takes these concept even further by
applying the same easy-to-use interface to ICE-Cube functions.
Configuring emulation RAM,
the address monitor, or other ICE-Cube functions is very easy. Set up an ICE-Cube function
with a few clicks and moves of the mouse. A mouse is never required in SDEBUG so you can
do on-site debugging on a small laptop computer. This very flexible program provides
features that will increase even an expert's productivity.
SDEBUG is completely
configurable - window colors, screen size and video mode, symbol case-sensitivity, windows
sizes and placement - all can be customized. Program downloads and ICE-Cube accesses are
very fast, operating up to 115k baud, even under Windows. Download a 105kb program in only
10 seconds. Use a mouse or keyboard to control program execution and select SDEBUG
functions. Single stepping and breakpointing are essential when debugging code. SDEBUG has
several powerful stepping functions for both assembly code and C code.
The user can very
easily move around in program files to set breakpoints or to execute to the cursor or to
an address. Use a symbol list or C function list to quickly set a breakpoint on or to go
to a selected symbol. No more paging through MAP or symbol files - SDEBUG displays the
sorted list, and as you type in a name, the cursor narrows in on your selection. This,
too, occurs on module pick lists and file lists. Debugging has never been easier or more
Users with large
banked-switched (or paged) programs using Softools' Control Cross-C compiler or SASM
cross-assembler get an added benefit - SDEBUG automatically handles program calls and
returns in and out of banked functions. SDEBUG creates a debugging environment that is
unmatched by any similarly priced Z80/Z180 in-circuit emulator and debugging development
system in today's market.
