I was debugging an application, and some RAM memory is modified abnormally.

watchpoint is a very good idea to catch the mistake, but I don't know how to use it.

I refered to the personal user manual, and there is a MON command BSH which can set hardware break point.

I tried to set command as:

MON> BSH W 32 0x2008efc0

but it does not work, the error message is:


MON>BSH W 32 0x2008efc0

Processor does not support address ranges in hardware breakpoints

Unsupported HWBP type

WARNING: breakpoint NOT set, target returned error.



I tried MON. BSH W 0x2008efc0

the breakpinter can set but it does not work.


I use mentor prober personal, the CPU is TI AM3505 which has a cortex-A8 core.

the tool chain is GNU.

does my processor not support hardware breakpoint?


could somebody can help me?
