Representation Specifications and Implementation Dependent Features
Representation specifications specify how the types of the language are to be mapped onto the underlying machine. Mappings acceptable to an implementation do not alter the net effect of a program. They can be provided to give more efficient representation or to interface with features that are outside the domain of the language (for example, peripheral hardware).
