Re: The memory window

That looks nice Mike! Good work there.

I was thinking there needs to be some way to easily determine in what format the data is being displayed and make it pretty easy to change formats, preferably, IMHO, from the main screen. Maybe there could be tabs with a view showing each format(dec, hex, oct, etc.). Maybe these tabs could be "tear-away" where a user could look at 2 or more formats simultaneously?

Just my 2¢.

Hey all,

Currently I'm working on implementing the memory window. If any of you
have ever used the 'examine memory' data tool from ddd, this is similar
to the functionality I would like to have.

As of last week, the window displayed all 32 bit words in binary, octal,
decimal and hex from the current program counter to a predetermined
memory location.

As of today, I am working on supporting endian-ness and reading
information from memory in 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 bit chunks.

As you can see in the screenshot, the "from" spinbox determines where
the words should begin to be read from (will default to the PC) and "to"
is where the reading ends. "edit columns" displays options for the
number of bits, endian-ness, and radix.

Let me know if there are any suggestions, on the interface or otherwise.
