Looking for Debugger for Avocet Assembly language app running on MC9S12XDT512 platform

This is my first post to the forum. I'm using the PEMicro USB Multilink interface. The PEMicro Debugger is barely adequate and the NOICE Debugger I purchased only marginally more so. Both of them only support address break points. I'm looking for a Debugger that will let me set break points on changes in a memory location, for example "when location 0x3231 changes to 0x44". And something with a good Trace buffer would be a plus.

You can download Freescale's CodeWarrior for HCS12(X) Special Edition which is free. It has build tools and a source-level debugger. The PE Micro USB interface is supported. You can also set watchpoints, which is where the debugger monitors the value of a variable. As a special edition, there is a code size restriction, but at the cost of your time in a download and experimenting with the debugger, it might be worth a look.

 

There is probably a GNU version of the tools available, but I don't have any experience with those.

I have tried that approach but there are so many differences between Avocet assembler and Code Warrior assembler syntax (mainly, but not limited to, directives) that my first build try resulted in over 11,000 errors. I suppose the conversion is possible but finding a more robust debugger would be infinitely more desirable to me.
