#100876 - You Sure?
Responding to: Andy Neil's previous message
In X86 in ASM or a 'C' near pointer (a 'C' far pointer has no problem) if you inc a pointer set to 0xFFFF you end up at the bottem of the segment. so an increment at FFFF:FFFF gives you FFFF:0000 not 0000:0000.

This applies to all segments. RAM, Code, Stack. In C you can hide this by carful choice of memrory model.

On X86 0000:0000 would not be the boot code. the reset vector is at the top of memory. It must have a jump the the start of code.
the bottom of memory for AM188 is the Interupt Vector Table.

MOV@R0 on the '52 would give you similar results.

In any case You Need a general embedded or X86 embedded group.
