HDT 0.3.3

The new version of HDT is available.

It adds a new “memory” module to make information more readily available on the memory.

In this new mode, we find the stone work on memory mappings. There are the following commands:

memory> show E820
Displays information E820

memory> show E801
Displays information E801

memory> show E88
Displays information E88

This release also fixes several bugs on the cli

  • the behavior of the backspace key,
  • the cursor disappearance
  • aid that overflows from the screen display

Also note that in this version, the display cursor is now flashing to facilitate its location. Warning, this is not working under QEMU.

Enjoy! PS: thank you Dag Wieers for its many returns and stone for his work on memory mapping.
