PointerBase, i.e., it is a word type. There is
never a Java class that implements the interface.
Field accesses are done via interface methods that are annotated with
RawField. All calls
of the interface methods are replaced with the appropriate memory operations.
The layout and size of the structure is inferred from the fields defined with
All fields are aligned according to the field size, i.e., 8-byte types are aligned at 8-byte
boundaries. It is currently not possible to influence the layout of fields. However, it is
possible to reserve extra space at the end of the structure by specifying a
To access an array of structs one can define a special

By default, the size computed based on the layout is used.
The provided class must have a no-argument constructor.
