Provide a Listing View For An Integrated Debugger

Debuggers typically provide a disassembled view of the machine code and/or a source code view. The debugger of this invention provides a listing view (as shown in the Figure) that offers several advantages:

Register usage and storage locations are displayed along with the source line;

Multiple views may also be provided, and both the disassembled view and listing view can be displayed concurrently.

Macros can be expanded inline; and

Assembler generated information can be displayed, such as:

DSECT (dummy sector (storage area)) Usings in effect

Symbol tables

XREF (cross reference/lookup) table
