Official Name: OP1-OP6
Memory Address: 8478
Length: 6 "registers" of 11 bytes each.
This area of memory is commonly used as temporary memory and for argument passing by many system routines.
This area is usually divided into six 11-byte registers:
- OP1 = 8478h
- OP2 = 8483h
- OP3 = 848Eh
- OP4 = 8499h
- OP5 = 84A4h
- OP6 = 84AFh
Among the many functions the OP registers are used for:
- A single OP register can hold an 11-byte floating point number.
- Two adjacent OP registers -- usually OP1 and OP2, OP3 and OP4, or OP5 and OP6 -- can hold a 22-byte complex number.
- The first 9 bytes of an OP register can hold a variable name.
- OP3-OP6 are used for storing short strings.
- All 6 OP registers can be used together to hold a single big integer.
