    Access RAM and ROM using windows.h

    using windows.h library i can get my virtual memory size
    and it is in the type of DWORDLONG
    now...

    how do i change DWORDLONG type to any number presentaition

    ,
    i have an assignment to write a program in any language that finds a string that might have been placed in RAM and ROM before.

    Thanks for your help.
