Modules and Symbols Window (Windows CE 5.0)
The Modules and Symbols window enables you to load and unload the symbols for a module.
A symbol is a name that represents a register, an absolute value, or a relative or absolute memory address.
Symbols, generated by the compiler, explain the relationship between source and object code. To change symbols, unload the symbols, make your changes, and then use an executable file to reload the symbols.
The Modules and Symbols window provides different information depending on whether the debugger is running, or if it is at a debug stop or breakpoint.
