Talk:cpp/language/alignof

From cppreference.com

"returns alignment". What is "alignment" ? This is totally unclear...

I've added a short description and a link to wikipedia for further reading. Hopefully, this will be enough for basic understanding what alignment is. P12 12:30, 13 June 2013 (PDT)
As cpp/language gets expanded, we should probably add a page on alignment requirement, fundamental alignment, extended alignment and their properties (e.g. already-mentioned restrictions on reinterpret_cast). --Cubbi 12:36, 13 June 2013 (PDT)
