#include <dpmi.h> int __djgpp_map_physical_memory(void *our_addr, unsigned long num_bytes, unsigned long phys_addr);
This function attempts to map a range of physical memory over the
specified addresses. One common use of this routine is to map device
memory, such as a linear frame buffer, into the address space of the
calling program. our_addr, num_bytes, and phys_addr
must be page-aligned. If they are not page-aligned,
be set to
EINVAL and the routine will fail.
This routine properly handles memory ranges that span multiple DPMI
__dpmi_map_device_in_memory_block does not.
Consult DPMI documentation on function 0508H for details on how this function works. Note: since 0508H is a DPMI service new with DPMI 1.0, this call will fail on most DPMI 0.9 servers. For your program to work on a wide range of systems, you should not assume this call will succeed.
Even on failure, this routine may affect a subset of the pages specified.
0 on success, -1 on failure. On failure,
errno will be set to
EINVAL for illegal input parameters, or
EACCES if the
DPMI server rejected the mapping request.
if (__djgpp_map_physical_memory (my_page_aligned_memory, 16384, 0x40000000)) printf ("Failed to map physical addresses!\n");
