Allegro CL version 8.1
Unrevised from 8.0 to 8.1.
8.0 version

aclmalloc-aligned

Arguments: size

Returns a fixnum which represents a location in the C heap with size octets. The fixnum has the same bit pattern as the address of the object. The actual address of the object can be obtained by multiplying the fixnum by 4 in a 32-bit lisp, and by 8 in a 64-bit lisp. Negative fixnums represent addresses in the upper half of memory. If no space of sufficient size is available, aclmalloc-aligned returns 0, just like malloc.
