    [Solution Needed] Structures questions

    Hi all, It is me again.. >_< I have these questions asked by my lecturer which i cant answer. Could any kind soul please help me =D

    Create a structure of a university ACM ICPC team that contains 6 strings of maximum 50
    characters (described in details below), number of problems solved (an integer),
    and finally their penalty points (an integer).
    Each of the 6 string represents one name. The first name is the team name, then the institution
    name, then the coach name, and finally the last three names are the contestant names.
    See this Wikipedia page for more details:
    ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    b. After the structure type is created, create three teams: t1, t2, t3, with the following data from a
    recent mock / training contest:
    Code:
    t1 = {NUSSOC1, NUS, Steven, Victor, Adhiraj, Hung, 4, 448}
    t2 = {NUSSOC2, NUS, Steven, Duc, Tien, Phong, 6, 716}
    t3 = {NUSSOC3, NUS, Steven, Haocong, BiRan, Daniel, 5, 755}

    c. Finally, use C code to do these operations:
    1. Check which one between struct t1, t2, or t3 is rank 1 in this ‘mock contest’.
    In ICPC, team is ranked based on number of problems solved.
    The answer is unique in this instance.
    2. Check which one between t1, t2, or t3 has team name equals to “NUSSOC1”,
    then display the coach name of that team.
    3. Suppose team t3 (NUSSOC3) solved another problem at minute 250, increased their number
    of problems solved by 1 and penalty points by 250. Update t3 and print the updated number
    of problems solved and the penalty points of t3.


    There is 3 parts in this question.

    Thank you very much =D

    What part are you having problems with? Show your attempt, any errors you get, and specifically what you can or cannot figure out.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Hi quzah thanks for the reply.
    Here is what i did.. but when i compare the team name.. it doesnt work. and i dont know how to approach the 3rd portion

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    struct icpc{
    	char team[8];
    	char insitution[8];
    	char coach[8];
    	char c1[8];
    	char c2[8];
    	char c3[8];
    	int solved, penalty;
    };
    
    
    int main()
    {
       struct icpc t1 = {"NUSSOC1","NUS","Steven","Victor","Adhiraj","Hung", 4, 448}, t2 = {"NUSSOC2","NUS","Steven","Duc","Tien","Phong", 6, 716}, t3 = {"NUSSOC3","NUS","Steven","Haocong","BiRan","Daniel", 5, 755};
    
       if(t1.solved>t2.solved && t1.solved>t3.solved)
    	   printf("Team 1 is rank 1.\n");
       if(t2.solved>t1.solved && t2.solved>t3.solved)
    	   printf("Team 2 is rank 1.\n");
       if(t3.solved>t1.solved && t3.solved>t2.solved)
    	   printf("Team 3 is rank 1.\n");
    
       if(t1.team == "NUSSOC1"){
    	   printf("%s\n",t1.coach);
           printf("12345\n");
       }
       if(t2.team == "NUSSOC1")
    	   printf("%s\n",t2.coach);
       if(t2.team == "NUSSOC1")
    	   printf("%s\n",t3.coach);
    
    }

    (26): warning C4130: '==' : logical operation on address of string constant
    (30): warning C4130: '==' : logical operation on address of string constant
    (32): warning C4130: '==' : logical operation on address of string constant

    Use strcmp to compare strings, not ==. Using == will compare a pointer to another pointer, which will never be true.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
