Bytes CHar CHar0 CHar0P CHarP GetPage I1 I1P I1U I1UP I2 I2P I2U I2UP I4 I4P I4U I4UP I8 I8P R4 R4P R8 R8P STruc STrucP SetPage
Executed in script order. Multiple occurences possible
SetPage struc = STRUCT(..., SetPage=n) to set value-page n in struc as in the example above
GetPage STRUCT(STruc=struc, GetPage=m) retrieves the data of struc, page m
Bytes struc = STRUCT(..., Bytes=len) on return variable len has the byte count of struc
data_type type
all POINTERS take up 4 bytes in STRUC
