c++ - How to memory read with memory padding??

Hi guys, this is my first time posting, and i've already looked around and found a few useful post regarding the memory padding stuff... but none of them shows how to read the memory directly with the padding. I am working on a program, it has about 150 "signals" each signal is just a struct... so i have 150 different structs... I am making something to dynamically parse the signal. So i have a file defined the structure of the signal, then when i pass the signal to my function i just do myFunction( signal, my_signal_structure ); my_signal_structure is basically just an int array, say, 1 = int8, 2 = int16, 3 = int32, 4 = MY_STRUCT1, 5 = MY_STRUCT2 etc.. (i used enum) When i read it, i use a for loop and a switch statement to go through the signal. i just do signal[memory_position], and read directly from the memory. And i know my_signal_structure[i] will give me what i am reading... say signal, and my_signal_structure is an int32, then i know that is an int32, and i need to increment my memory_position by 4 after that. It works fine when i test it with simple stuff, but when i put in more complex struct, then the memory padding kicks in... is there a simple way to read the memory and at the same time dealing with the padding?
