How does the µC/DSP watchdog work with VisSim?

How does the watchdog work with VisSim in the DSP? In a µC, it consists of an interrupt that resets the computer automatically if the watchdog is not disarmed before the end of a predefined time period. It means that the programmer must arrange to periodically reset the watchdog timer to prohibit the watchdog from resetting the DSP.

The watchdog is used to detect infinite looping in the software. The VisSim watchDog block lets you set the period of the watchdog. How do I give it the reset codes? Does it require any interrupt management? Can VisSim do interrupt handling?
