The !ks.eval extension evaluates an expression using an extension-specific expression evaluator.

    !ks.eval Expression 



Specifies the expression to evaluate. Expression can include any MASM operators, symbols, or numerical syntax, as well as the extension-specific operators described below. For more information about MASM expressions, see MASM Numbers and Operators.


Windows 2000


Windows XP and later



Additional Information

For more information, see Kernel Streaming Debugging.


The extension module includes two extension-specific operators which can be used in address parameters to extension commands:

fdo( x )

Returns the functional device object associated with the object at address x.

driver( x )

Returns the driver object associated with fdo(x).

You can use the !ks.eval command to parse expressions that contain these extension-specific operators as well as MASM Numbers and Operators.

Note that all operators supported by !ks.eval are also supported by all other extension commands in the Ks.dll extension module.

Here is an example of the !ks.eval extension being used with the address of a filter. Note the presence of the 0x8241C020 address in the !ks.allstreams output:

kd> !eval fdo(829493c4)
Resulting Evaluation: 8241c020

kd> !allstreams
