    Help with poker program(involving structs) C

    Code:
    How do i set my Card struct to seperate variables(card1,card2, card3, card4,card5) which only holds the on the card_num(the card number)
    
    
    
    typedef struct card
    {
    	int card_num;
    	int suit;
    	int face;
    } Card;
    
    
    I tried this:
    
    				
                                    card1 = hand1[1].card_num;
    				card2 = hand1[2].card_num;
    				card3 = hand1[3].card_num;
    				card4 = hand1[4].card_num;
    				card5 = hand1[5].card_num; 
    
    
    with this as the initiallizer:
    Card hand1[5] = {0,0,0,0,0};

    Code tags are for code only. You don't need (and shouldn't have them) around everything. Your problem is your initializer. You have an array of structs. That means you need one set of curly braces for the array initializer, and one for each struct in the array. You have to provide an initializer for each element in the array, but can use shorthand for the struct. This should do it:
    Code:
        Card hand1[5] = {{0}, {0}, {0}, {0}, {0}};
