Getting Started->Loading a ColdFire Program into the Simulator
Your ColdFire program will be automatically loaded into the Simulator as soon as you select any of the commands Go, Step Into, Step Over, Step to cursor or Trace.
The program that is loaded is the one specified in the output file name field of the Build, Settings, Linker tab; except if you are running the simulator in stand-alone mode when it is the file specified in the Build, Settings, Simulator tab.
If the file does not exist the Embedded Development Studio will tell you and simulation will be aborted. If the file is out-of-date, the Embedded Development Studio will warn you and offer you the chance to rebuild it. If your project settings indicate that the file is not in IEEE695 format and does not contain any debug records, the Embedded Development Studio will warn you and offer to change your settings and rebuild your output file.
