Am looking at watch point operations a with BF533
Under Update 5.5 -- simulator
Gets in exception "once" for instruction watch match
Ignores data watch operations
We discussed issues about what to expect with the new update -- i.e. not to expect everything to be fixed in 5.7.
However have come up with a couple of unexpected issues with update 7
Under Update 5.7 simulator
instruction watch match
You said that simulator would work with 2 instruction watch point registers using a range, but not with 1 instruction watch point watching a single location
Actually I find that I get into instruction watch exception -- "every other instruction access" when using a single register for watching
This might suggest that the simulator control register for watch point
Gets into exception -- "every other time" for instruction watch match
Given the fact that I am only using 1 instruction watch register and not a range -- does this suggest an issue with the way the control bits are being handled (or just the fact the simulator defaults to watching a range regardless of setting).
AM surprized that it works "every other time"
As you indicated simulator to handle data watch match in later issue
Am going to try and configure settings to work with a range of instructions (of size 1) and see what I get
