I'ts a pretty dumb but I hope someone could save me some time. I want to take a memory address and calculate the upper and lower limits of that page.

so for memory mapping with 64k pages the address 12345 yields {0,65535} and address 98302 would yield {65536,131070}.

I know i can use MOD but i'm looking for the quickest and easeist way. ps. i can not assume pages to be 64k.

Code:
PAGE_SIZE = 65536 ; Always 2^n where n can go from 0 to 30
MOD_MASK = -PAGE_SIZE

calculate_bounds:; EAX = Address
mov edx, PAGE_SIZE-1
and eax, MOD_MASK
add edx, eax

ret ; EAX = lower limit; EDX = upper limit
    


[edit] Or maybe better
Code:
calculate_bounds:; EAX = Address 
and eax, MOD_MASK
lea edx, [eax+PAGE_SIZE-1]

ret ; EAX = lower limit; EDX = upper limit     
[/edit]

; assuming granularity is a power of two
add eax, granularity-1
and eax, 0-granularity
; EAX is upper bound (beyond page)
; just subtract page size to get lower bound
