First of all, hello to everyone... it has been a long time without amiga coding :)

Now, I used to have a 030 but now got a 060 machine and I want to do some FPU routines. I used to use devpac + monam to assemble and debug, and while devpac is working great for assembly FPU stuff, monam is not showing FPU registers nor FPU instructions...

so, which debugger do you use?

I use the debugger in Asm-One, doesn't do anything fancy but it shows the contents of the registers and usually that's enough.

Cool to hear that you are coding again.

hi Winden,

A bit off-topic but a very warm welcome :) Seeing you back doing Amiga code is fantastic news. Does this mean that we can expect some sort of demo/intro again from Network in the future?

I loved Synthesis, the last demo from Network. The spanish scene was so promising at that time (with network, ozone, capsule...) yet it vanished so fast again :(

Please be a patient with answers on this forum. It has been down for a while and has only been up again for a short period. So ppl have to rediscover it again.

A bit offtopic indeed... I'm mostly taking a slow restart as I've been about 6 years without serious democoding (oracle sql coding has melted my mind ;) so no I can't promise any productions, even more if all the crew stays as busy as they are now. BUT I've upgraded my 1200 from 030 to 060 and got a netcard also so I'll become active again.

Yes we all vanished at the same time... many people from capsule and network joined pyro studios to work on commandos 2, some others left their usual job to fund their own business, and some others finished studying and got to work (this was me for example). you know when your whole generation of friends/competitors leave the scene, motivation drops sharply...

I'll publish some article with a spanish report soon, don't worry :)

good debuggers are hard to find. I don't use a debugger, but mainly because I haven't found one which doesn't annoy me out of this world.. Sadly I don't use asmone and I'm littering my code with phxass specific stuff too (love the PUBLIC keyword)... I tried barfly but it doesn't seem to break where I want it to. . ...

If you have a routine working with a system startup or have a developing environment that runs in system I can recommend the debugger in SAS/C, namely cpr.

And yes, it works well with assembler stuff, just enable debug info in PhxAss :)

Doesn't do anything fancy? Then you didn't really play with it yet. :) Because it's very good! I couldn't live w/o it. For bigger projects (i.e. demos) I use the debugger of my DemoOS which allows me to do many nifty things while the code is running. :)

Does WinUAE have a debugger ? So I can stop it whilst running and step through the 68k code like on an Action Replay.

Yes, WinUAE has a debugger. You can step through instructions in it.

How do you use it/access it ?

It's Shift+F12 or something similiar, check the docs in WinUAE.

Yes, shift+f12 enables the UAE debugger. The disassembler is quite funny, I still try to figure out what opcode MVMEL.L is. :D
("MVMEL.L #$4cc0,(a7)+", this looks soooo 1337 :P)
Also swap.w looks very nice. :D
