    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    struct emp
    { 
      char name[80]; 
    }; 
    
    struct emp data ( void )
    { 
      struct emp e; 
      strcpy(e.name,"test"); 
      return e; 
    }
    
    int main ( void )
    { 
      struct emp e; 
      e = data();
      return 0;
    }
    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.
