Specifies field alignment.

Type|Union typename Field = { 1 | 2 | 4 }
End Type|Union

Field can be used to pack Types or Unions more tightly than the default layout. The most commonly used value is Field = 1, which causes the Type or Union to be packed as tightly as possible, without any padding bytes being added between the fields or at the end of the Type. Field can only be used to decrease field alignment, but it cannot be used to increase it. In order to add padding bytes, a Union with appropriate members could be used instead.
