    struct question

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    struct game
    {
    int level;
    int score;
    struct player
    {
    char *name;
    }g2={"anil"};
    }g3={10,200};
    void main()
    {
    struct game g1=g3;
    clrscr();
    printf("%d  %d  %s",g1.level,g1.score,g1.g2.name);
    getch();
    }
    
    output:
    Line 9: error: expected ':', ',', ';', '}' or '__attribute__' before '=' token
    In function 'main':
    Line 15: error: 'struct game' has no member named 'g2'
    


    What is the reason behind the error messages?

    The resason for the error messages is that you are typing in garbage code...

    The initialiser for your struct would be
    Code:
    struct game
    {
    int level;
    int score;
    struct player
    {
    char *name;
    }g2;
    }g3 = { 100, 200, { "hello" } };
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
