  • Summary:

    Summary: We have come across the following issue with regard to typecode
    indirections. The specification states:

    the indirection is a numeric octet offset within the scope of some
    "top level" TypeCode and points to the TCKind value for the

    The question arrises then is it legal to point to the (possible)
    padding bytes preceeding the TCKind value or must the numberic value
    indicate the position of the actual TCKind value. If you assume the
    former then having rewound the required number of bytes you would word
    align before interogating the TCKind enum value.
