A method for updating memory references when moving a block of data elements in a memory. The method comprises storing, in entries (E1-EN) of a table (70), memory references to data elements (90) in the block of data elements (80). For each memory reference, a first base address (B2) and an offset address (O2) are stored in the table (70). The first base address (B2) is an address to a reference point in the block of data elements (80). The offset address (O2) indicates an address, relative to the reference point, of the data element (90) to which the memory reference points. The method further comprises generating a second base address (B2'), which is the address of said reference point after the move. Moreover, the method comprises replacing, in the table (70), each occurrence of the first base address (B2) with the second base address (B2'). A device for carrying out the method is also disclosed.
