Disassembly windows display disassembled instructions and symbolic information, which is useful for temporarily modifying the code to test a change or to view code when no source is available. The Disassembly window allows you to examine the assembly code generated by the C/C++ compiler. Symbolic information includes alphanumeric characters representing values and addresses.You can perform the following in the view:


• Setting breakpoints at the start of any assembly instruction
• Enabling or disabling breakpoints and setting their properties
• Stepping through disassembled instructions
• Jumping to specific instructions, symbols, or expressions
• Temporarily modifying code in order to test a change or view code when no source is available


To explore the Disassembly view:
For CCES: Choose Window > Show View > Other > Debug > Disassembly and click OK.
For VDSP: By default,a Disassembly window appears when you open a new session.If not you can choose View > Debug windows > Disassembly
