Tuple Breakpoints
TupleBreakpoint.gif A Tuple Breakpoint, one of the two complex breakpoints, is the pairing of an address breakpoint and a data breakpoint where program execution will be suspended when the conditions of both breakpoints are met simultaneously. A maximum of two tuples may be defined at any one time.

Tuples are also also called ANDed Breakpoints since the break conditions of both the address and the data breakpoint must be true before program execution is suspended.

Data Breakpoint Activities

Some Example Uses

  • Isolate a specific instance of a read or write to a register, when that register might be read or written from multiple program locations.
