    Arrow Error while trying to initialize pointer to a struct!

    I wrote a program about structs and pointers...but i think i have one mistake! Please take a look at the code:

    I suppose my serious problem is only at the red mark and more specific when initializing the pointer! I hope so...

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <time.h>
    
    struct Packet{
    	int id;
    	char content[5];
    };
    
    int intit_Max(struct Packet A[], int size){
    	int i, j, maxS;
    	struct Packet max5;
    		for(i=0; i<size; i++){
    			A[i].id=rand();
    			for(j=0; j<4; j++){
    				A[i].content[j]=(char)(rand()%26+'a');
    				A[i].content[5]='\0';
    				printf("%12d%s\n", A[i].id, A[i].content);
    			}
    			
    			maxS=A[0].id;
    				for(i=0; i<size; i++){
    					if( A[i].id > maxS ){
    						maxS=A[i].id;
    							return maxS;
    					}
    				}
    		}
    }
    
    int main(void){
    	struct Packet A[10];
    	struct Packet *myS;
    		myS = init_Max(A, 10);
    		printf("\nMax: %d%f\n", myS.id, myS.content);
    }
    
    Thank you in advance...

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