No, these are helper functions in memory.c/.h   Give them a look, they help 
out A LOT.  I think dump_buf or something and dump_mmxbuf  I am away from my 
code machine, so can not see the code to know the write function name. 
These functions can easily be scattered in a busted format, and then when 
run on a working system vs a busted system, it is pretty easy to track down 
why end results are different.  I used this a lot in getting the BE vs LE 
issues worked out.
