[WP34s] QtGui version



#8

WOW, I just found that the QtGui-WP34s can display an extra window with the stack registers (in the menu 'Debug') - really a nice feature! :-)

An additional window for the registers 00-99 would also be a great enhancement (maybe 10 regs at a time with a +/- or up/down button).

And of course these separate stack/reg windows would also be great in the usual wp34sgui.exe - Marcus? ;-)


#9

Yes, we plan to develop a full debugger in the QtGui emulator and the current one is just a proof of concept, not even a prototype.

I'll work on it and other nice features as soon as the multi-platform flashing tool is finished. Debugging serial communication is very time-consuming though. Especially when the cable is faulty :-(

Do you mean a real debugger, i.e. showing the assembly codes of the HP20b/30b ARM CPU?

Well, I don't think that this would be worth the time and trouble. I know such debuggers from some other calculator emulations (e.g. WabbitEmu or VTI for TI calcs), but in fact I've never really needed or used these debuggers.

I was just talking about a register display which is much more useful in my opinion.


#11

No, I'm talking about a debugger at source level with of course a register display.


#12

An ARM debugger is out of question because the emulator is in fact a simulator, or better stated, an independent target platform which has no connection to the ARM processor in the 20b/30b.

I don't plan any enhancements to the old emulator engine. It will stay in the distribution as long as it's useful and can be easily built. As soon as I'm able to compile the Qt version for Windows, the old emulator will be history.

I'm sorry if this will disappoint you.

You're right, these are indeed no good news! :(
