    What do you mean "edit RAM"?
    Your program has a bunch of variables, which you can modify according to their types.

    If you want to mess about with the memory in another program say, then it gets real messy in a hurry. Certainly not something you would normally do, and certainly not something which can be achieved without an API.

    That is unless your OS is DOS (or some embedded real time operating system) without any kind of memory protection at all, and it's basically open season for any program which wants to go roaming through memory.
