Addresses are used to locate persons or places. Addresses usually follow a logical pattern. For example, the addresses on one block may be from 1300 to 1399, the next from 1400 to 1499, and so on. Locations in memory also are identified by address. These addresses often look quite different than the street addresses we’re used to, since they usually are expressed as hexadecimal (Base 16) numbers such as 0x8fc1. However, regardless of how the number is written, as shown in Figure 2-1, memory addresses follow the same logical, sequential pattern as do street addresses, one number coming after another.
The data type you choose will affect not only the form in which the data is stored, but also the amount of memory required to store it. This chapter will explain the different data types. Memory Computer programs consist of instructions and data. As discussed in Chapter 1, instructions, written in a programming language such as C++ and then translated by the compiler and linker into machine language, give the computer step-by-step directions on what to do. The data is the information that is the subject of the program.
As explained in the earlier section on the Compiler, the compiler can understand your code and translate it into machine language only if your code is in the proper syntax for that programming language. As also explained there, C++ has rules for the spelling of words and for the grammar of statements. If there is a violation of those rules, that is, a syntax error, then the compiler cannot translate your code into machine language instructions, and instead will call your attention to the syntax errors.
