89 Glossary \z "GLOSSW.DOC- 1001" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1002" A mode in the Windows operating system that runs on the 80386 and 80486 processors. It provides access to extended memory and the ability to run non-Windows-based applications. This and standard mode are both referred to as protected mode in the Windows operating system and offer more capability than real mode. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1003" All processors in the Intel 8086 family, including the 8086, 80286, 80386, and 80486 CPU chips. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1004" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1005" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1006" All math processors (also called math coprocessors) in the Intel 8087 family, including the 8087, 80287, and 80387 chips. These processors perform high-speed floating-point and binary-coded-decimal number processing. The 80486 chip includes a math processor. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1007" The CodeView window in which the floating-point math processor’s registers are displayed. This window remains empty until a math processor instruction is executed. If the program uses the Microsoft math processor emulator library, the contents of the emulated math processor’s registers are displayed. A \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1008" See “argument.” \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1009" A printed-circuit card that plugs into a computer and controls a device, such as a video display or a printer. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1010" The memory location of a data item or procedure, or an expression that evaluates to an address. In CodeView, the expression can represent just the offset (a default segment is assumed), or it can be in segment : offset format. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1011" A range of memory bounded by two addresses. \z "GLOSSW.DOC- 1012" Assignment to a segment at link time. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1013" The institute responsible for defining programming-language standards to promote portability of languages between different computer systems. An 8-bit character set that contains 256 characters.
