Arduino Debugger Preview - 10 Beta Testers Required Answered

The Visual Micro Arduino debug tools seemlessly combine simple debug features into the free Visual Studio plugin. The tools allow us to make use of the source code breakpoint features of Visual Studio. Please read and understand all of these documents if you are working on dangerous projects such as critical devices and/or moving machines.

There are 15 draft documents available on visualmicro.com, this is a link to the first document Arduino Debugger Overview

In the image below we can see a number of debug breakpoints, some are conditional. In the code, the old style debug messages are commented because they are no longer needed :)

The debugger includes optional trace or break, jump to source, edit and continue. All Arduino variables or expressions can be included in breakpoint reporting. String messages are not stored on the Arduinio which allows long an informative messages to be created without using Arduino RAM and without need to alter source codes.

The debug upgrade is expected to be free for educational use, $50 hobby use, $200 commercial use. 10 beta testers are required whom will each be provided with a free license. Please contact instructablesbeta@visualmicro.com

Due for release June 2012
