    how to make function return value go to structure record

    Hello,

    I have a question in regards to how do I make a function return value go to a specific record of a structure.

    I have tried a few ways to do this but can't seem to see how to do it. Maybe i just can't see the obvious when it is in front of me

    I now how to set records of a structure when in the main function but i have a specific return value of a function I want to set in the structure record.

    as an example:

    Code:
    typedef struct
    {
    	char name[21];
    	char city[21];
    	char state[3];
    } Rec;
    typedef Rec *RecPointer;
    
    RecPointer r;
    r = (RecPointer)malloc(sizeof(Rec));
    
    strcpy((*r).name, "Leigh");
    but what if I want the "Leigh" set to r->name from a seperate function?

    Like this:
    Code:
    r->name = function()
    I know it isn't the right way but am unsure on how to proceed with this.
