Hardware support for program debuggers in a paged virtual memory


This paper proposes a hardware unit which assists interactive debuggers in detecting breakpoint and watchpoint conditions. In the past debugger packages have used inefficient and expensive techniques for determining when a breakpoint has been reached. Most of these solutions have relied on large, inefficient and restrictive software routines, with very… (More)
