  Description     : Locate and modify a variable in an executing process

scanmem is an interactive debugging utility that can be used to isolate
the address of a variable in an executing process by successively
scanning the process' address space looking for matching values. By
informing scanmem how the value of the variable changes over time, it
can determine the actual location (or locations) of the variable by
successively eliminating non-matches. Once a variable has been found,
scanmem can monitor the variable, or change it to a user specified
value, either once, or continually over a period of time.
