Debugger per CMX-RTX
When the CMXBug task is running,
it prohibits other tasks from running and also freezes the task
timers and cyclic timers, so as the user will get an accurate
picture of the "current state" of the CMX OS
CMXBug allows the user to "single step" one system TICK, thus allowing normal activity to occur for one system TICK, with CMXBug resuming after this "single step". Also the user can set the number of system TICKS that CMXBug will wait, allowing normal activity, before it again resumes. This is a very powerful and helpful feature.
CMXBug allows the user access to most of the CMX OS features, such as: Tasks, Cyclic timers, Resources, Mailboxes, Queues, Stacks, the system TICK and TIMESLICE scales, etc. For example, you may view a task, which shows it's current state (ready, waiting on what, the time remaining, etc.), it's current priority, it's starting address, the events associated with the task, the task's stack address and maximum usage, etc. Also you may start a task, wake a task that was waiting on some entity, stop a task, etc.
CMXBug also allows the user information pertaining to each task percentage of RUNNING time, to the total. This enables the user to obtain an accurate picture of each task, in relation to all tasks. It also shows the amount of time, that the processor is "IDLE" with no task running. This allows the user a very powerful insight as to how the processor time is being spent.
CMXBug is now available for FREE, with the CMX CMX-RTX package, for most processors/vendors that CMX supports. All source code is included.
