DDT

  • DEBUGGING.
  • DISASSEMBLY.
  • TRACING.

Functions to help debug and develop the nd100em has been included in its functionality. This document will try describe how each of those subsystems work/dump info and possibly postprocessing of that and tools needed.

DEBUGGING

If you set debug=1 in the config file, nd100em will produce a file called debug.log, where simple information can be dumped out from any routines that need to.

DISASSEMBLY

Tracing disassembler

If you set disasm=1 in the config file, nd100em will internally build a structure of the running program, so basically it also becomes a tracing disassembler. It tracks if an address is used as data or code, and tags it accordingly. At the end of program execution, it will dump this structure into a disassembly file, with extra comments containing things like what address accessed a data word, labels relative jumps etc. It currently can only handle code without paging active.

Output is: <addr> <word> <possible label> <code|UNKN:|DATA:> <comment>

comment field can be:

  • From what address was this data accessed
  • Alternative interpretion as code instead of data
  • To what label this jump goes, note: only tracks first jump

Some examples of how it might look are:

TRACING

In flux at the moment, so this will be documented later more accurately.
