The built-in function %LOC computes the internal address of a storage item. It takes the following form:
The %LOC function produces an integer value that represents the location of the given argument. The value is INTEGER(8) on Alpha and ia64 processors; INTEGER(4) on ia32 processors. You can use this integer value as an item in an arithmetic expression.
The LOC intrinsic function serves the same purpose as the %LOC built-in function.
