of course.

but you'd better hope that the compiler packs that data structure in
the same way the device is sending it. you'd be far better off not
using a struct for this, but just reading (in your case) 10 bytes.

sending raw C structs over any kind of "wire protocol" almost always
turns out to be huge mistake unless its been very carefully thought
