  • [SOLVED] Ways of setting Starting Stack Pointer Value

    Currently in SES you can use symbol or hex value to set initial stack pointer value (Debug-> Debugger .. ).

    It would be great if there were other ways to do this - particularly through script or SES' macros expansion & execution.

    E.g. I would like to use this l33t script function (with emScript):

    function get_sp_val_from_bin(){
    //Note: bin_file_full_path must be defined when calling the script with -define
    //The bin file for a Cortex M will have SP value as first word / 32bit
    BinaryFile.load( bin_file_full_path );
    var val = BinaryFile.peekUint32(0, true);
    return val;
    }
    spval = get_sp_val_from_bin();

    WScript.Echo( "0x" + spval.toString(16) );

    and then in SES specify the intial SP value with possibly something like:

    $(StudioDir)/bin/$(StudioScriptToolExeName) -define 'bin_file_full_path'='$(ProjectDir)/$(OutDir)/hello_world.bin' -load $(ProjectDir)/initial_sp.js

  • Hello,

    Did it make it into the upcoming release?

    This will not be implemented yet as the final decision is not made yet.

    For now if the SP is not set correctly through download as it is usually expected we recommend setting it through the application.

    We will consider this thread as solved now.

    Best regards,
    Nino
