Cross Compiler Frequently Asked Questions (Toggle all items)

Module and function static variables combine the aspect of hiding for other parts of the program (reduced visibility scope in comparison with global variables) with a fixed memory location ...

The last aspect allows inspection of the variable even when the instruction pointer is in a foreign scope. Universal Debug Engine supports this feature.

Size and speed of the target program is not influenced if you use a data type enum instead of integer.

The benefit is the symbolic background. Instead of numbers enums tell in a text form about states and values of the target program. UDE supports the text display of enums in Locals and Watch window. To change enums a context menu offers all possible values also in textual form.
