Description[edit]

X'Alignment is an Ada attribute where X is any memory-allocated object or type. This attribute controls the address values used for objects. The alignment must be non-negative. A value of zero means that the object need not be allocated at the boundary of a storage units. Otherwise the address is a multiple of X's alignment.

The alignment of an object may be set.
