Reading specified Location

P: n/a
Hi all!

I was wonder if there is any way of reading any specified location on
RAM, as we can read any specified sector from diskettes using
absread().

Is it possible, I mean i think protected mode may not permit it. If is
possible then how can it be done.

Thanx in advance.

Standard C doesn't specify if that's possible. Your OS may disallow it.

That is not a standard C function. This is another thing that standard C
does not specify how to do, and your OS may disallow it.

We don't know, since we don't know anything about the system you are
targeting. If we did, it would be off topic here. Try a group that
discusses programming for the system you are targeting.

Please tell me where diskettes and/or absread() are defined in the
C standard? In other words this is far off topic for c.l.c, where
we deal only with portable, ISO standard C. See the welcome
message and FAQ.
