Debug: L (Load)

Loads a file or the contents of specific disk sectors into memory.

To load the contents of the number of bytes specified in the BX:CX registers from a disk file, use the following syntax:

l [address]

To bypass the Windows NT file system and directly load specific sectors, use the following syntax:

l address drive start number



Specifies the memory location where you want to load the file or the sector contents. If you do not specify address, Debug uses the current address in the CS register.


Specifies the drive that contains the disk from which specific sectors are to be read. This value is numeric: 0 = A, 1 = B, 2 = C, and so on. You use the drive, start, and number parameters only if you want to load the contents of specific sectors rather than load the file specified on the debug command line or in the most recent Debug n (name) command.


Specifies the hexadecimal number of the first sector whose contents you want to load.


Specifies the hexadecimal number of consecutive sectors whose contents you want to load.

For information about specifying a file for the l command, see the Debug N (Name) command.

For information about writing the file being debugged to a disk, see the Debug W (Write) command.
