Im new to pelles and i think its cool. Im porting an application writed in vc++.

And i think it would be nice that the debugger include some of this things. I think maybe some are hard to implement, but anyway here i go:

Code: [Select]

    - Expression evalutaion: i would be nice to put something like
       g_Array[0x2000] in the watch window.
    - Memory reference: i work with pelles and masm at time and could be
      nice to write "ebx" in the memory address field so it reflects the
      contents of memory. As well an expression like ebx + 0x1000
      (for example)
    - Pause the Debugger while its running?

I write this cos im programming an emulator and some times its usefull to know exactly the value of some memory location.

And again congratulations for a good compiler/ide  :)

Hello and welcome,

Thank you for the input!

I have thought about expression evaluation. It can be useful at times, just not sure if it's worth the work. Maybe. I have to think about it.

I miss using registers in the memory window too. This will be added. Expressions are like above, will have to think about it.

You mean pause the program running under the debugger? the "Break" command usually works. Or do you mean something else?
