Debug: W--Notes

Caution: Writing to specific sectors is extremely risky because it bypasses the Windows NT file handler. The disk's file structure can easily be damaged if the wrong values are typed.

You must have specified the name of the disk file when you started Debug or in the most recent Debug n (name) command. Both of these methods properly format a filename for a file control block at address CS:5C.

Resetting BX:CX before using the w command without parameters

If you have used a Debug g (go), t (trace), p (proceed), or r (register) command, you must reset the BX:CX registers before using the w command without parameters.

Writing a modified file to a disk

If you modify the file but do not change the name, length, or starting address, Debug can still correctly write the file to the original disk location.

Limitation on the w command

You cannot write an .EXE or .HEX file with this command.
