Memory dump Window Format
« on: June 05, 2018, 08:04:52 pm »
Hello,
I'm using Code::Blocks 13.12.  Running on a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian 4.9.45 OS.   In debugging my C program I wish to view a global array of floats.   I can find the array in the memory dump window but it displays hex data.   Is there any way to view the data in float format?
Thanks much

Watches window shows the global arrays but not their contents.  Just shows a pointer to their location in memory.  Is there  a way to display the contents of  global arrays in the Watches window, (in float format)?

Have you tried to right click on the watch and inspect the properties?
There are options to enable display of arrays.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

You can add your own watches by going with the mouse over the variable you want to see->right click->Add watch
This is only available in the running debugger...

[Edit:] You can also add watches, by typing in a free row in the watches window. There you can enter nearly any valid c syntax. Like &variable will give you the address and *variable will give you the value of a pointer... You can also enter variable1+variable2 and so on...
