I would like to see the additional operators in OAL and yet am not sure explicit masking-in of bits is the best approach. Maybe something more declarative rather than imperative…
There is (was?) support in MC-3020 for marking bit fields on attributes (in the comment block) of classes.
Also, a feature to “fix” the extent at a specific location in memory was provided:
What are your thoughts on this? If it worked, would it be a workable approach?
