The quick help bar shows most of the available keypresses across the bottom of the screen. Use the cursor keys to move around the display and keys 0 to 9 and A to F to change values in any of the hexadecimal display formats. You can enter any value on the text display format, including pressing ALT plus a number on the numeric keypad. Multiple data windows are supported by CWD. The following chart shows the keypress and functions for the Data window.




Moves the display point to the expression specified when prompted. The expression used may contain symbols, numbers or registers. Segment and offset should be separated by a colon. For example, SS:ESP is a valid expression as is DS:80h. It is possible to specify both a register and a numeric/symbolic expression for the offset, e.g. EBP+10h or two registers e.g., DX:AX. If a single register is used with the offset, then the display dynamically tracks that register value as each instruction is executed.


Displays a sorted list of symbols. Highlight the symbol you want to move the display to and press enter. Symbols are listed with names on the left and values on the right. The C or D displayed adjacent to the value indicates the address type is CODE or DATA. A speed search is available by typing the desired symbol text. Backspacing to eliminate mistyped characters is supported.
