What do shareable, discardable, notpagable section flags do?
I can't figure out the purpose for shareable, discardable, and notpageable flags. The other ones (like readable, import, export, executable, code) make sense, but I'm not sure what those specific 3 that I mentioned above are for. I couldn't find anything in the FASM manual for them, other than listing them as available flags. No description at all about what they are for.

The PE spec defines all the flags.

Windows doesn't necessarily use them all so sometimes they do nothing.
