getvregs (tool command)

Retrieves the vector register contents from the RCP co-processor


getvregs thread


getvregs command sends a message requesting the contents of the coprocessor vector registers from the target system by way of the dbgif tool and displays the register contents (in hex) on stdout. The thread argument is required, but meaningless. Choose your favorite integer.

Before executing this command, you must ensure that the dbgif program is running and that the METHOD environment variable is set.

The target system ignores the specified value, so it does not need to be changed to the "correct" value of one, indicating that this is a request for the co-processor.

The environment variable does need to be set so that a value can be supplied as part of the request packet.

In csh, this is accomplished by specifying the following:

setenv METHOD 1 

If the coprocessor is running, the request will probably fail.


In the event of a communications failure, the program will dump core. If this happens, you must remove the core file manually.

The thread argument should not be required.
