I'm experimenting with a few VMs and I need to have access to the contents
of the VMs (physical) memory that is written in the save file. I read
on the mailing archives that there's no documentation on the save file
format (right?). I was wondering can anyone help me by pointing me to
the location in the save file that is the start of VM's memory image
(e.g. X byes from the beginning/end of the file). The following:


 mentions that someone there are a set of tools for
parsing the save file. Would it be possible to have access to
those tools and use them to extract the contents of the VM's memory?
