1. networking e-mail address.
2. networking Internet address.
3. networking MAC address.
4. storage, programming An unsigned integer used to select
one fundamental element of storage, usually known as a word
from a computer's main memory or other storage device. The
CPU outputs addresses on its address bus which may be
connected to an address decoder, cache controller, memorymanagement unit, and other devices.
While from a hardware point of view an address is indeed an
integer most strongly typed programming languages disallow
mixing integers and addresses, and indeed addresses of
different data types. This is a fine example for syntacticsalt: the compiler could work without it but makes writing
bad programs more difficult.
