I'm unable to view the Map file generated by VisualDSP++. How do you view it?





Memory Map files are available only in .xml format. The map.XML file should be viewed within an Internet Browser, such as Internet Explorer, for best results. Opening an XML map file in a browser provides an organized view of the map file. By using hyperlinks, it becomes easy to quickly find any relevant information.


If the Memory Map file was received from someone else, the XML's paths to linker_map_ss1.xsl and linker_map.dtd need to be changed.  These use absolute paths and need to be changed to point to the location of these two files on the new computer.
