  • debug variable watch help needed

    I want to watch a buffer during debugging. The buffer is defined in another function as a static byte array and my function has a pointer to a byte in it.

    How can I watch the whole array (or at least the first say 64 bytes) in the debug variable watch window?

    Hopefully someone else has a better answer, but to date if I need to watch elements of an array, I have to place a watch on each element separately, which as you can see is a royal pain when you need to watch (as you say) 64 elements within the array

      quite. For a first-class compiler it is a surprisingly skimpy debugger, but then my programming is so bad I have become a pretty nifty debugger under even the most trying of circumstances!

        Could you not string some bytes together in a tempstring and watch them in that tempstring?
        As in:
        temp$=format$(bytearray(1))+" "+format$(bytearray(2))...
        Then watch the temp$ or as many temp$s as required, space allowed.
        Not a perfect solution perhaps but....

          Yes. I ended up doing a block move into a string and watching that.

          My very point.

          I seem to have let it get to me! temporary suspension of the nil carborundum principle.
