An address is a number indicating a position of a value in the virtual memory address space of a process. Windows processes receive a virtual address space of 4GB. To address this space, 32 bit-wide addresses are required. Cockpit uses numeric values in the long range (LONG) to represent addresses. That's because addresses are passed to Dll functions as numerics and the Xbase++ default interpretation for numerics is LONG.
