Thanks for the info everybody. Sounds like it just can't be done. I
just hate having to move back up to the top of a source member to see
the definition for a constant in the debugger. Of course, once I see it
I write it down since it won't change, but I'd rather hover my pointer
over it to get the value like any other variable.

I've never had the need to try it, just the first thought that came to
mind.

I don't believe WDSC (or RDi) will allow you to monitor a constant. I
have tried this in the past and it wouldn't allow me to do it.

David,

That was my first thought also...

However, named variables are just address, the compiler substitutes an
address every place a variable is used right?

It seems to me it's not unreasonable for the debugger to be able to
show us a constant.

Particularly since IIRC, for a constant, the compiler simply sets the
vaule up as automatic storage and replaces the name with an address
just like a variable.

Doubtful ... named constants are just that ... constants. The
compiler

probably just substitutes the assigned value whenever the name is
referenced.
