Abstract

A buffer has dynamically allocatable segments for diverse data processing operations. A detected buffer error results in an analysis for demarking a minimal segment size. For example, a plurality of segments may be joined to function as a single FIFO (first in, first out) buffer. n detection of an error of such a macro collection of segments, the analysis inhibits demarking (making unaddressable) until the segment in error is identified.
