Debugger commands vs. target commands

    As a newbie with GHS MULTI 2000, I wonder what the difference is
    between target commands for debug and their counterparts in the
    debugger itself. (This is rather general question, not necessarily
    related to MULTI 2000.) I know that those two sets of commands are
    orthogonal (e.g., one cannot see breakoins set in the target shell in
    the list of the debugger breakpoints). I perceive that the debugger is
    usually more convenient. But I conceive intuitively that there must be
    advantages of the target shell, too. What are they? Why will one use
    the target commands for debugging?

  2. you can use them in situations where the debugger is unavailable, for
    example out in the field.
