Bug 000167

When Created: 07/23/1997 02:34:12
Against DJGPP version: 2.01
By whom: mdvorsky@dodo.sk
Abstract: Problem with numbers in binary files
I successfully open file with fopen in binary mode. Then I read some binary data with fread to variable (of type struct) where I have more variables (some of type unsigned char and unsigned short int). And vaules in unsigned short int isn't right. In BC++ 3 it works good.

Even from the vague description given, it's rather clear this isn't
a bug in DJGPP. It's very probably the usual structure element alignment
problem. I'll mail the bug submitter about it right now...
