External Databases - Special Topics
Command Post utilizes external databases to provide certain features. There
is no need to install these databases, but without them, certain features
unavailable. All Command Post databases have the extension CPDB.
You can place the databases in any folder on your calculator, but do not
change the names of the databases.
We recommend that you archive your databases for best results.
Rom Call Database (download)
The rom call database is called romcalls. When this database is installed,
Command Post will automatically try to determine which asm statements in the disassembly
refer to a rom call. If a match is made, Command Post will place a comment following
the statement with the corresponding rom call name. Additionally, if you are viewing
the first line of a known rom call in the disassembly view, Command Post will place
the name of the rom call in the status line. You can download the current romcalls
database from this location (full source code
and instructions for making your own database are included). If you make any updates
which would benefit the public, be sure to contact us!
NOTE: Command Post will attempt to generate a small (approximately
5K) internal database from the RomCalls database. If there is not enough
free RAM to do this, Command Post will
not tell you when you are at the first byte of a rom call in the disassembly view.
The memory locations database is called memdat. When installed, this
database gives Command Post the ability to name Absolute Memory Addresses. As you
move the Hex Editor Cursor, or the disassembly view over a recognized address,
Command Post will alert you by placing the associated name in the status bar. You
can download the current memdat database from this
location (full source code and instructions for making your own database
are included). If you make any updates which would benefit the public, be sure to
