function TypeOfMem(

  const Address: APTR





A memory address

Function result

A long word of memory attribute flags. If the address is not in known RAM, zero is returned.


Given a RAM memory address, search the system memory lists and return its memory attributes. The memory attributes are similar to those specified when the memory was first allocated: (eg. MEMF_*)

If the address is not in known-space, a zero will be returned. (Anything that is not RAM, like the ROM or expansion area, will return zero. Also the first few bytes of a memory area are used up by the MemHeader.)
