The LOCATE statement has the form
and causes variables to be stored at a specified address in the computer's memory. Most uses of this statement are system-dependent. Implementations for use on time-sharing systems may support this statement in only a very limited way, perhaps only allowing statements like

Note also that even the above example is not system-independent, as FALCON does not require that addresses be supplied in a form that can be manipulated via integer arithmetic.
