    not really sure if this is the place to post this at... but it is the programming section so maybe someone could help me...

    ok so here's what i'm currently doing. I am using dosbox and i've already entered debug.... i can use assembler mode using -a command... and then show that using -u command.. these are only simple mov and add scripts... however when i try to say:

    mov ax, 2000
    mov [1000], ax

    then i hit something like -g
    however when i display, using -d 072a:1000.(072a is the default value for ds) i find that those memory locations still contain the default values which are 00...

    when i type in -r to show the registers, it just doesnt show any change to it...

    i tried doing -r ax 2000 then did something say add ax, 0a32 then mov [1000],ax..
    i hit -g again... then when i used the -d command on 1000 the values does not change... please help

    I think the Borland Turbo Debugger(TD) for dos is freeware now. That is a much better debugger and it is a lot of documentation for TD on the net
