Target commands offer a very efficient way to modify a running system from the host. A target command is any class method (method declared static) without parameters. Such a command can be called from the host system. Through the debugger connection the method is called by the runtime system on the target.
For information about how to call a target command see Target Operation View and TargetCMD.
A method called by such a target command is entered exactly once into the main loop. A target command can alter a global variable, a configuration parameter or start or stop a new task. This is a very efficient way for systems under development to adjust and test settings without the need for recompilation.
