VAX/VMS Virtual Memory: A Real Address Space

This lesson describes the structure and its implications of the ​real address space of VAX/VMS.

One neat aspect of studying VMS is that we can see how a real address space is constructed (see figure below). Thus far, we have assumed a simple address space of just user code, user data, and user heap, but as we can see above, a real address space is notably more complex.
