    What type of paramaters would be passed into these type of function

    In the 2 functions below what type of paramaters would be passed into these:

    Code:
    int name (fname *b)
    
    int name (fname *b, lname *d)
    Confused on what fname and lname are.

    And we can't really tell you either - since fname and lname are not standard types, they are defined somewhere in your code as typedef's.

    It couldn't be as simple as this are the values set in those pointers. Could it?

    I should have stated that both fname and lname are structures

    They are both structures. Does that mean *b and *d are just pointers to the structure? Thanks.

    Think I got it - Please confirm

    These are just pointers to a data type which in this case will be a specific structure declared in typedef??

    Yes, they are just pointers to that struct.
