safemode

Display or change whether target memory reads are suppressed for areas designated as DRAM by the memory map.

Syntax

safemode [= bool-cond]

Where:

bool-cond

specifies a number of an expression that must evaluate to true (non-zero) or false (zero).

Discussion

Use the safemode control variable to disable automatic target memory reads before DRAM has been configured. The default setting for safemode is false. Entering the control variable without an option displays the current setting.  

If safemode is set to false, all target memory reads are allowed. If safemode is set to true, SourcePoint suppresses a target memory read if the address range falls within a DRAM range in the memory map.

Memory accesses by commands run in the Command window are not affected by safemode. Safemode is bypassed when accessing memory in this way.

If safemode is enabled, the title bar in SourcePoint will display (safe mode) after the project file path.

Example 1

To display the current setting:

Command input:

safemode

Result:

FALSE

Example 2

To enable safemode:

Command input:

safemode=true

safemode

Result:

TRUE
