memory viewer enhancement - continuous update

I noticed after using DataGhost's build that the built in memory viewer does not update unless you press a button. Since I've been trying to observe the live preview image index switching for the motion detection stuff, I modified the built in CHDK memory viewer to continuously update. This is the patch if anyone is interested:

Code: [Select]
Index: gui_debug.c
===================================================================

-        debug_to_draw = 2;

If you don't want to bother with the patch, just change

Code: [Select]
debug_to_draw = 0;
to

Code: [Select]
debug_to_draw = 2;
in case 2 of the switch statement in the gui_debug_draw() function in gui_debug.c

I like it. I don't think there is any drawback to constantly update the display, maybe it should be considered to change the default behavior into that.

Another improvement to do concerning the memory viewer: save the currently displayed address when exiting the memory viewer, and display the same address the next time it starts. It's very annoying when you have to exit the memory viewer to change some setting.

Ok, I added saving the last used address in the memory viewer. It only saves when you exit <ALT> mode before turning off the camera (I think anyway). I'll need to learn more about the conf system details, I guess. I also added the use of the zoom key to change the increment in both directions, and the UP key now turns on and off the auto refresh option.

Patch attached.
