If I create a const char xxx = "abc" variable, it can be displayed in an expression window (because it is displaying the ram copy of the data from rom).
If I create a static const char xxx ="abc" variable, how can I show the value in VisualDSP? The data is kept in rom and not copied to ram. I was planning to put code revision numbers in rom in this way, that are never used by the executing code, but useful for configuration management. For example, add this to a file taken out of RCS :
static const char variables_rcsid = "$Id:";
