STRUC            Define Structure Type                         MASM Directive

name      STRUC
name      ENDS

Initiates the definition of a structure type.

Notes:     The structure may have any number of fields.  Each field
definition must be of the following form:

[name]   DB | DW | DD | DQ | DT   initialValue,,,

The optional parameter name specifies the name of the
field. The DB, DW, DD, DQ, or DT specifies the size of
the field.  InitialValue assigns a default value to be
used if no value is included when the structure is
declared. See DB, DW, DD, DQ, and DT for a more
comprehensive discussion of how to use these directives.

The STRUC directive by itself does not create data. It
merely creates a data type. To create data of this type,
use the syntax:

[name]      structureName      <[initialValue,,,]>

where name is the name of a variable and structureName
is the name of a structure type previously defined with
the STRUC directive. One initialValue may be declared
for each field in the structure, using commas to
separate the initial values for each field. For example,
<,,3> will initialize the 3rd field of a structure.

Structure definitions can contain only comments and
field definitions, therefore nested structures are not
