I am trying to read stdouts from my Nios from JTAG-UART with the JTAG UART Intel FPGA IP in the system console (is this the right place?).
That's because I want to be able to read the output and analyse it with my own software (stdin and out from the console to my application).
With the GDB debugger I am able to read and write, but I need to be able to hot swap the pc where the application is running.
I read some forum entries:
But I wasn't able to create a "listener".
I tried to fiddle manually with the GDB server:
But I wasn't able to find the correct commands/configuration to read the stdout from the slave.
Any help would be appreciated.
We dont have such solution.
You can only change stdin/stdout if you have a real UART port in your board. In this case, you can port stdin/stdout to that UART, and this UART is connected to PC where you can run your custom application and read the data.
Thank you for the information.
Is this planned? Or do we have to expect that there will never be a some sort of API to communicate with custom software over JTAG/UART?
I mean there was something like the jtag-atlantic DLL.
