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, memory
management 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 syntactic
salt: the compiler could work without it but makes writing bad programs more
