const AExceptionAddress: Pointer;

): Pointer;



AExceptionAddress [in]

A known code pointer.

This is auxilary function for DisasmFunction. It's used to find some starting address to begin disassebling code block. Usually you know exception address (i.e. some pointer to code), but don't know exact starting address of the function.


When this function is used with DisasmFunction: it's recommended that FindLowAddress's ALines argument equals to DisasmFunction's ALines argument.
