What is a far pointer?

Definition: A far pointer is a pointer which includes segment number. In a segmented architecture computer, far pointers are used to address the entire 1mb memory which is available under Dos.

Most programmers today (as of 2009) never use far pointers.

Instead, most programmers always use 32 bit "flat pointers".

example: int main() {

int a; a=10; printf("%d",&a); return 0;

} Explanation:

When this code is saved/compiled the processor allocates a small amount of memory and memor address is given between the memory range 0 to 65,535.Which is part of the 1mb dos memory ie(10,48,780)bytes.If you want to store data/code beyond the memory range and any where in that 1mb memory.You can do that using the far pointers.By declaring a variable as 'far'pointer.The compiler tells the processor to allocate memory for that specific data/code to perform a specific process in that specific address.The address which is exceeds the 65,535 memory range if referred using the 4 digit hexadecimal number,using the two CPU registers namely segment,offset. While referring to memory address greater than 65,535,the 1mb dos memory is divided into segments,Each segment containing 0 to 65,535 locations(64kb) and to refer these segments the segment register is used.The offset regsiter is used to refer the 65,535 locations present in each segment. So using these two registers(segment:offset)we can refer the entire 1mb memory avialable in Dos.And it is done by writing the segment and offset address side by side like this B8000000.The first four hexadecimal digit represents the segment address and the last four hexadecimal address represents the offset address.

Answernot local. in assembly, there is a certain amount of memory it has to span before being considered "far" AnswerA far pointer uses both the segment and the offset address to point to a location in memory. A near pointer in contrast uses only the offset address and the default segment. The far pointer can point to any location in memory, whereas the near pointer can only point to a nearby local address.

The distinction between near and far is invisible in newer languages such as Visual Basic, C#, and PHP.

AnswerIn a segmented architecture computer, a far pointer is a pointer which includes a segment selector, making it possible to point to addresses outside of the current segment.

For example, in an Intel 8086, where an ordinary pointer is just a 16-bit offset within an implied segment, a far pointer has two parts: a 16-bit segment value and a 16-bit offset value. A linear address is obtained by shifting the binary segment value four times to the left, and then adding the offset value. Hence the effective address is 20 bits (actually 21-bit, which led to the address wraparound and the Gate A20). Comparison and arithmetic on far pointers are problematic: there are potentially 4096 different segment-offset address pairs that point to the same address. To compare two far pointers, they must first be converted (normalized) to their 20-bit linear representation.

On C compilers targeting the 8086 processor family, far pointers were declared using a non-standard far qualifier. For example, char far *p; defined a far pointer to a char. The difficulty of normalizing far pointers could be avoided with the non-standard huge qualifier.

How do you change a valve gasket on an Acura Vigor?

If by valve gasket, you mean the valve cover gasket, then its rather simple. I have a site that shows how its done. Just remove the top nuts and replace. The nuts should be tightened evenly across the valve cover. Here's my site:

What makes 94 Acura Vigor overheat?

Could be the result of a faulty fuel relay. Usually when this happens, the engine will crank but will not start. Just locate the relay in the kick panel and replace it or just resolder the board. Usually theres 1 or 2 cold solder joints causing the problem. Its simply because of the tight area it is in and the lack of ventilation (i'm assuming).

How do you enter a stereo code on a 1992 Acura Legend?

If I remember, turn the stereo on, enter the code using the 6 preset buttons. After the beep, turn the stereo off. Then turn the stereo on and it should be OK. I just pulled my radio to get into the dash.

How do you discounect the Vigor's alarm system you feel it is draining the battery?

I have been having a problem with my factory alarm also. I have read about 20 posts on various sites suggesting hte same fix. I called my mechanic and car stereo store to confirm this would work and they all agreed it would. Open the hood and bend the little switch that detects if the hood is closed. This will make the factory alarm think that the car is not closed up and it will not alarm itself. Hope this helps rusty0628@yahoo.com

How do you replace a 1992 Honda Vigor water pump?

This is not an easy job for the inexperienced, or someone who does not have another car to drive while this is being done.

remove fans, radiator, belts, hoses pullies and such. I would recommend having the acura "water pump" package done where they replace the timingbelt, tensioner, water pump, VC gasket and valve adjustment.

This job is worth it's weight in gold!

How do you find the code for the vigor stereo system?

It's in your owner's manual,if you do not have one then take it to the dealer.

Answer

Also, check the bottom of your ash tray. Pull it out and turn it over. They usually put a copy of the code there (for the shop to turn your radio back on since they don't know the code and often have to disconnect the battery).

-Allan

you can also find it by following these instructions...

1. open the hood

2. look to your left, there is a black plastic triangular box, this is one of your fuse panels

3. take the lid off. under it, you will see a sticker with a 5 digit number, this is your code.

(note) you only get 3 tries to enter the correct code before the stereo system locks.

you can unlock it by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it again to get another 3 attempts.

Where is the location for the control module- ignition for 92' Acura Vigor?

The PGM-FI unit is located under carpet at the passenger side. It covered by frame. Good luck. The ignition control module of any late model Honda/Acura product is always the PGMFI computer, which controls all fuel delivery and ignition timing coordination. Now, if you have a problem, that is ignition related, first replace the plugs, then the wires, and shortly after the ign coil itself. That's how you approach a Honda ign prob.

How do you know which wire is positive and which wire is negative in the stereo of the car rear specifically?

Positive is normally red or white with a red stripe. Negative is usually green or on rare occasions black. A multimeter will verify this.

How do you change out the neutral safety switch on a Acura Vigor?

This is a complicated switch to replace. My best advice it to pay an auto shop to do it, they will charge about $50. Its complicated because the switch goes onto the transmission, so there's a lot of panels to remove and put back.

Whats the problem with your 92 Acura Vigor if only cold air comes out the heating vents and ts not the thermostat?

Well, this could be a variety of problems, including the thermostat. Check fluid levels. See if your water pump is leaking. Heater core lines may be clogged. Flush the system, and CHANGE the thermostat. Try to get all the air out of the system. I would have a hard time believing that if you are only blowing cold air, and your engine is responding correctly and the idle is not going up and down, your heater core is probably blocked.

Where is the transmission dipstick for a 1987 LS Acura?

1) Is it a standard transmission or automatic engine? 2) Front wheel drive or rear wheel drive? If it is a standard transmission, you wont have a dip stick. if it is an automatic front wheel drive, it'll be on driver's side front.

How do you change the oil pump on a 92 Acura Vigor?

Don't assume that low oil pressure is caused by a failed oil pump. It's usually worn bearings requiring a complete engine rebuild. It would be unfortunate to go to all of that trouble and find that it didn't really solve anything. Before you replace the oil pump, disassemble the old one and check for excessive wear on the gear surfaces.

What is the radio code for 1993 Acura Vigor GS?

you can look under your ash tray..or open the trunk and look on the inside top...somewhere near the middle there may be a sticker with 2 5-digit codes...for mine there was only one choice because the other contained digits higher than 6 (you enter the code using the 6 preset buttons on your radio)
