Downloading and Running a Program->Running without a Target Reset

You will typically download without a reset if your program is configured to run in the program space of a debug monitor (dBug for instance).  Therefore a program that you might otherwise download via the serial port and run with a debug monitor command can be downloaded and run unmodified via the BDM cable.  The debugger will not reset the target but will simple halt it, optionally download your program and start to run it from its entry point.

This method is particularly convenient because the target board remains correctly configured and your program can call the debug monitors I/O interface calls etc.
