This feature allows you to export the registers present in a target processor to a text file. Doing this enables you to read all the register values more easily, which can be helpful when debugging.
  1. Create an embedded application project and build it. See Applications for more details about application projects.
  2. After building the project, launch the debugger. You can debug using System Debugger, or by using the emulator.
  3. When the program stops at the main breakpoint, click Step Over to move to the required point for debug.
  4. Click Export Registers.

  5. Add the following information in the view that appears:
    Location
    Provide the location where you want to save the register dump file.
    Command
    This is based on the selection in the debug perspective.
    Select registers/groups to export
    Select the list of registers to be dumped. You can uncheck any registers that are not required.
  6. Click OK to dump the registers to the location you specified in the previous step.
