The purpose of this document is to show developers how to debug ARM Embedded Applications using GNU Tools. In this document we will be discussing two different debugging procedures: GDB from the command line and from the Insight GUI. Both can be used to effectively debug your applications and use the same GDB commands. The main difference with Insight is that it provides a graphical interface for the debugging commands. The demonstration will show how to use both debugging procedures from the command line or from the Codeblocks IDE. The major topics to be covered in this document are:

  • OpenOCD setup
  • Essential GDB commands and how to invoke it from Codeblocks
  • Essential Insight commands and how to invoke it from Codeblocks
