Due to the request from blog readers I made my old Practical Foundations of Debugging lectures available in PDF format:

  1. Memory, registers and simple arithmetic
  2. Number representations and pointers
  3. Bytes, words, double words and pointers to memory
  4. Instruction pointer and disassembling a program with pointers
  5. Memory and stacks
  6. Frame pointer and local variables (Part 1)
  7. Frame pointer and local variables (Part 2)
  8. Function parameters
  9. Function pointer parameters (Part 1)
  10. Function pointer parameters (Part 2)
  11. Virtual Memory, Processes and Threads (Part 1)
  12. Virtual Memory, Processes and Threads (Part 2)
  13. Arrays and structures in memory (Part 1)
  14. Arrays and structures in memory (Part 2)

x64 version:

  1. Memory, registers and simple arithmetic
  2. Number representations and pointers

I keep both versions (HTMP and PDF) on the following pages where updates or corrections will be posted in the future:

    Dmitry, your posts are always so useful. You’re my debugging idol!
    Just ordered your volume 1 to check it out this summer along Advanced Windows Debugging.
