I'm running an ATmega2560, AVR JTAGICE mkII, WinAVR 20080610 and AVR Studio 4.14. I'm trying to put a breakpoint on a 2-byte (short) variable in SRAM, global variable, not marked as static. The breakpoint window gives me a error mark with:

Unable to set data breakpoint with size 2. Only single byte data types are supported.

That's odd -- I was pretty sure I could do this in versions past.

I can set the SRAM data breakpoint by going through the Memory Window. Awkward, but there.

I must be missing something here.

Can anyone drop me a clue here?


Engineering seems to boil down to: Cheap. Fast. Good. Choose two. Sometimes choose only one.
