Please consider following enum type.

typedef enum ParamAttrMask{
    ParamAttrMask_None       = 0x00, // Cannot be read or writtent
    ParamAttrMask_Read       = 0x01, // Can read
    ParamAttrMask_Write      = 0x02, // Can write
    ParamAttrMask_ReadWrite  = ParamAttrMask_Read | ParamAttrMask_Write, // Readable and Writable
    ParamAttrMask_Locked     = 0x04, // Needs password to write
    ParamAttrMask_Archive    = 0x08, 
    ParamAttrMask_RunTime    = 0x10,
  } tParamAttrMask;

ParamAttrMask  Attributes;

How many bytes is allocated for Attributes ?  Is it one byte? Is it compiler specifice?
