Pointers

Recommended Posts

Hi

If I do this:

$temp = Ptr( 0X008 )

Does that mean that $temp now points to memory address 0x00000008 ?

If so then how do I print the actual value of $temp and not just the address to which $temp points?

Do I make sense?

I guess I would ask how do I dereference the pointer?

Direct memory addressing is not that simple. There are multiple layers of relative addressing involved.

I have no experience with it but others have discussed the NomadMemory.au3 UDF for that purpose.

NomadMemory.au3... I'll check it out. Thanks for your reply! I was beginning to wonder if I even existed! :o
