Class CreateDataBackgroundCmd

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class CreateDataBackgroundCmd
    extends BackgroundCommand
    This command will create a data of type dataType throughout an addressSet. If there are any existing instructions in the area to be made into data, the command will fail. Any data in the area will be replaced with the new dataType, except when the existing data or the given dataType is a pointer. If the existing dataType is a pointer, then it will be changed into a pointer to the given dataType. If the given dataType is a pointer and the existing data is >= to the size of a pointer, it will become a pointer to the existing type. If the existing dataType is less than the size of a pointer, then a pointer to dataType will only be created if there are enough undefined bytes following to make a pointer.
