There a procedure I want to translate..


PROCEDURE GetPhysical(VAR lw:Byte);
VAR regs : registers;
  BEGIN
    WITH regs DO BEGIN
      GetIntVec($58,old58);
      GetIntVec($13,old13);
      SetIntVec($58,@Help58);
      SetIntVec($13,@GetPhys);
      al:=lw; cx:=1; dx:=0;
      ds:=Seg(buffer); bx:=Ofs(buffer);
      intr($58,regs);
      SetIntVec($58,old58);
      SetIntVec($13,old13);
      lw:=Mem[$40:$41];
    END;
  END;

How can we use registers in Delphi.

You mast do this with SimulateRealModeInt.
Here is example:

type
  TRealModeRegisters = record
    case integer of
      0:(EDI,ESI,EBP,EXX,EBX,EDX,ECX,EAX:Longint;
          Flags,ES,DS,FS,GS,IP,CS,SP,SS:Word);
      1:(DI,DIH,SI,SIH,BP,BPH,XX,XXH:Word;
       case integer of
         0 :(BX,BXH,DX,DXH,CX,CXH,AX,AXH:Word);
         1:(BL,BH,BLH,BHH,DL,DH,DLH,DHH,CL,CH,CLH,CHH,AL,AH,ALH,AHH:Byte));
  end;

function RealModeInterrupt( Int:Byte; var Regs:TRealModeRegsisters):boolean;
var
  Error : boolean;
begin
  asm
    mov Error,0
    mov ax,0300h
    mov bl,Int
    mov bh,0
    mov cx,0
    les di,Regs
    int 31h
    jnc @@End
    @@Err:
    mov Error,1
    @@End:
  end
  Result := not Error;
end;

procedure YourProc;
var Reg : TRealModeRegisters;
begin
  with Reg do
  begin
     { set you'r AX,BL,DX ..... }
     if RealModeInterrupt( $13{you'r int nr}, Reg ) then;
  end;
end;
