I wish to keep this data in the same order, since I read the entire structure in in one READ statement. As far as I can tell, this should be naturally aligned, but I get a warning message every time I compile it:
end type piece
Since all of the above are of length 1 byte, I don't understand why there should be any unaligned items. But in case there are, how can I insert dummy items in the above sequence without disrupting the order of the READ statement? I had to put the SEQUENCE statement in there, otherwise it won't compile at all.
