The example in 126.96.36.199 [new.delete.placement] reads:
[Example: This can be useful for constructing an object at a known address:This example has potential alignment problems. One way to correct it would be to change the definition of place to read:char place[sizeof(Something)]; Something* p = new (place) Something();—end example]
char* place = new char[sizeof(Something)];
Rationale (10/99): This is an issue for the Library Working Group.
