Command to list chipRAM, fastRAM and slowRAM

Hello, is there a command which displays the amount of chipRAM, fastRAM and slowRAM?

When you boot in Workbench 3.1 the slowRAM is displayed as "other mem" and therefore if you have also fastRAM the "other mem" includes both the slowRAM and the fastRAM.

With Workbench 1.3 (kickstart 1.3) only "free mem" is given which includes both chipRAM and slowRAM (and fastRAM if available).

What I am looking for is a command that can tell me how specifically how much chipRAM, fastRAM and slowRAM I have.

For example I have an A500 with a 512MB RAM board and I want to see if this is detected as slowRAM or as chipRAM.

Avail gives you chip- and fastram. Showconfig may print slowram.

Should be possible to work this out with simple mathematics.

I can see that when using the avail command slowRAM is reported as fastRAM in Workbench 1.3. The below screenshot is with 512KB chipRAM and 1MB slowRAM.

So I can detect if the board ram is being detected as chipRAM or slowRAM using this method.
