Function Documentation

idaman void ida_export set_dbgmem_source ( range_t *(idaapi *)(int *n)  dbg_get_memory_config,
int(idaapi *)(ea_t ea, void *buffer, int size)  memory_read,
int(idaapi *)(ea_t ea, const void *buffer, int size)  memory_write 
)

Set the memory information source for IDA kernel.

This function allows the kernel to use information coming from somewhere other than the database (from the debugger, for example)

Parameters
dbg_get_memory_configreturns current memory configuration in the dynamic memory allocated by qalloc(). The kernel will qfree() it automatically. If this argument is NULL, then the debugged process memory is not used.
  • n: number of ::range_t elements in the answer
memory_readread bytes from the debugged process memory
memory_writewrite bytes to the debugged process memory (don't forget to call invalidate_dbgmem_contents() from it)
idaman void ida_export invalidate_dbgmem_config ( void  )

Invalidate the debugged process memory configuration.

Call this function if the debugged process might have changed its memory layout (allocated more memory, for example)

idaman void ida_export invalidate_dbgmem_contents ( ea_t  ea,
asize_t  size 
)

Invalidate the debugged process memory contents.

Call this function each time the process has been stopped or the process memory is modified. If ea == BADADDR, then the whole memory contents will be invalidated
