HI. I've bought LPC1343 eval board recently, and already gained some experience writing projects including ADC, timers etc..
but can't undestand simple thing:
When i try to step through these lines using F5 or F6, the IDE freezes. Why? (If there is more complex code in the while loop, then everything's ok)

int main(void) {

volatile unsigned int i = 0 ;
while(1) {
  i++ ;
}
return 0 ;
}
