.readmem (Read Memory from File)

The .readmem command reads raw binary data from the specified file and copies the data to the target computer's memory.

.readmem FileName Range 


Specifies the name of the file to read. You can specify a full path or only the file name. If the file name contains spaces, enclose FileName in quotation marks. If you do not specify a path, the debugger uses the current directory.

Specifies the address range for putting the data in memory. This parameter can contain a starting and ending address or a starting address and an object count. For more information about the syntax, see Address and Address Range Syntax.

The memory data is copied literally to the target computer. The debugger does not parse the data in any way. For example, the .readmem myfile 1000 10 command copies 10 bytes from the Myfile file and stores them in the target computer's memory, starting at address 1000.

The .readmem command is the opposite of the .writemem (Write Memory to File) command.
