There was an article in Dr. Dobb's Journal, October 1990,
that I think may be relevant to what you are trying to do.


(These opinions are just mine, I only represent myself, etc.)


1. Memory-mapped device driver

I would like to write an OS/2 device driver to access memory in an image
processing board which was 1 MB of onboard memory. The board can be
set up to be mapped into a 64K window under 1Mb mark, or to a 1MB linear
space above 1Mb mark. I would like to use the later mode of operation.

I was reading the "Writing OS/2 Device drivers in C" in which this two
froms of memory mapping are mentioned. The example provided only shows the
set up a for the 64K window though. I thought of modifing the driver
to use a larger space but the PhystoUVirt function only takes a USHORT
as a size parameter. I presume this is not the currect appoach.

Any suggenstions will be appeciated.

3. CoCo 3: is the video driver memory-mapped graphics?

4. Need to save non-dos disk data to files.

5. Are Memory-Mapped Files Supported by OS/2?

6. No market for AMIGAs ??

7. Memory-mapped I/O

8. Mapping a network drive

9. "Memory-Mapped" I/O devic
