Answer 1, the alignment of an empty struct

Return the pragmas that are written in the file-out of this class.

compileSize: size align: alignment

This method's functionality should be implemented by subclasses of CCompound

declaration: array inject: startOffset into: aBlock
Compile methods that implement the declaration in array. To compute the offset after each field, the value of the old offset plus the new field's size is passed to aBlock, together with the new field's alignment requirements.

emitInspectTo: str for: name
Private - Emit onto the given stream the code for adding the given selector to the CCompound's inspector.

newStruct: structName declaration: array
The old way to create a CStruct. Superseded by #subclass:declaration:...
