Well, the Packing pragma is very old. A Pragma is an adidional instruction to the compiler,stated in te file to be compiled. In the Packing case, it is about how to align data on Preferred Data Boundaries. A 64 bit CPU is most efficient if all items are stored at addresses, a multiple of 64. Failing to do so, the code will not break down. it will just take (very minutely) longer to execute, but will never break your code.

Now, you can Easily enter "Packing Hell"! That occurs when different packing pragma's are used in different components. Unless if something is critical, the best idea is to leave all packing pragments out, unless you have reasons to use them, e.g. Interfacing a new 64 structure with say old 16 or 32 bit data.
