I am thinking of getting a Dragon to debug an Atmega168 via debugWire and gdb under Linux. Looking at the AVaRICE source code, it seems that debugWire s/w breakpoints might now be supported, yet the documentation still says they are not. So, before I spend any money, I just want to find out what the current state of play is regarding avarice + debugWire?
Are debugWire software breakpoints supported?
Can I single-step through programs using debugWire?
Can I examine variable values using debugWire?
