I have the following code:

Code:

  (some code that defines and populates threshold)

  push ecx
  mov ecx,#850000
  cmp [threshold],ecx
  jae threached
  pop ecx
  ...
  jmp return

threached:
  pop ecx
 ...
  jmp return


but it doesn't work because "threshold", that was defined as a symbol in CE script, holds the value of memory that has a pointer and it is the value that this pointer points to that I want to compare to 850000. In other words, "threshold" is a pointer to a pointer.

How do I retrieve the value pointed by a pointer to a pointer so that I can compare it to 850000?

Thank you!

UPDATE: after some heavy google searching, problem is solved. I just have to de-reference it twice. Smile
