Intel® Customer Scripts, or simply Cscripts, can be quite helpful in tandem with a debugger like SourcePoint™ when you’re trying to bring up a new Intel-based design. In fact, Intel Cscripts can let you know when there are certain problems in the hardware design and, to a certain extent, they can help debug the firmware. They’ll also help you diagnose catastrophic errors. And, just as importantly, they can give you some insight into those murky gray areas, those places in the system that are not working as they should, but the overall system seems to be working. Or mostly working.
