Code:
local function AOBScanEx(aob,p,a,n,s,e,pb)
  local p,a,n,s,e = p or '*X*W',a or fsmNotAligned,n or '0',s or 0x0,e or 0xffffffffffffffff
  local ms = pb and createMemScan(pb) or createMemScan()
  local fl = createFoundList(ms)
  ms.firstScan(soExactValue,vtByteArray,nil,aob,nil,s,e,p,a,n,true,false,false,false)
  ms.waitTillDone()
  fl.initialize()
  local result = nil
  if fl ~= nil and fl.getCount() > 0 then
    result = createStringlist()
    for i=1,fl.getCount() do result.add(fl.getAddress(i-1)) end
  end
  fl.destroy()
  ms.destroy()
  return result
end


This extend the original AOBScan (non bytes table version) with optional starting address, ending address and progress bar. It create a MemScan and a FoundList object and destroy after scanning, and return a string_list object, same as the original AOBScan.

After the AOBScanEx definition, with this assignment,
Code:
local AOBScan = AOBScanEx

your code using original AOBScan should behave the same. The original global AOBScan is still there, but only will be called in scope where the local AOBScan not applied.

It is convenient to scan in a known memory range, eg the 2M PSX working ram on a emu.
