I am looking for software debuggers, does Intel support any (Debugging on Target) ? I am using Pentium 2 processor and on C++ environment.
Any help is highly appreciated.
which operating system do you have in mind?
If you're using Linux, then take a look at GDB (also comes with Intel Parallel Studio XE). On and for Windows, we do not provide a standalone debugger.
I'd also question support of Pentium 2. The minimum processor generation supported with our development tools requires SSE2.
Thanks for your inputs Georg. I am on windows operating system. I am working around quite legacy systems that had pentium 2 processors.
If not standalone, is there any other alternate method to debug on the target. Any method that supports in setting up breakpoints and accessing registers/global symbols etc.,.
You might want to try WinDbg. You get it from Microsoft's WDK:
Does ITP-XDP 3BR Kit support P2 procs. What would be the cost involved.
Thanks in advance.
I see that your request is for system debugging, not application debugging. I've asked a colleague to follow up with you on that. He knows which platforms are supported there.
I do not believe that there is a way to support system debugging on PII based platforms any longer with Intel debuggers. But let me check.
Which JTAG interface is available on your Pentium 2 target platform?
