linear

Translate an address to a linear address.

Syntax

[[px]] linear(addr)

Where:

[px]

is a viewpoint override, including punctuation ( [ ] ), specifying that the viewpoint is temporarily set to processor x of the boundary scan chain.  The processor can be specified as px (where x is the processor ID), or an alias you have defined for a given processor ID.  ALL cannot be used as a viewpoint override.

addr

specifies an address to be translated to a linear address.

Discussion

Use the linear command to translate the specified addr to a linear address using the address translation rules currently in force in the target system (e.g., paging or current processor mode).

  • When you enter a linear address, it is returned unchanged.

  • When entering a virtual address, it's translated to a linear address.

Example 1

To translate a real mode virtual address:

Command input:

linear(1234:5678)

Result:

000179b8L

Example 2

To translate a protected mode virtual address:

Command input:

linear(18h:14h:0)

Result:

00C03000L
