    Initialisation query

    can you initialise an array of structs, with values when the structure contains a further array?

    for example

    I have a structure:

    Code:
    typedef struct PATTERNS
    		{
    		int pattern[10];
    		int	num_instructions;
    		} PAT, *PAT_PTR;
    and then i have an array of said structure and i want to initialise the whole bunch with values.

    I thought i could go some thing like:

    Code:
    PAT patternx[2] = {{5, 94, 8, 94, 3, 30, 4, 60, 3, 30}, 5, {5, 94, 8, 94, 3, 30, 4, 60, 3, 30}, 5};
    but the compiler complained.

    Any suggestions?

    Just needs some more {}

    Code:
    PAT patternx[2] = {
        {
            { 5, 94, 8, 94, 3, 30, 4, 60, 3, 30 },
            5
        },
        {
            { 5, 94, 8, 94, 3, 30, 4, 60, 3, 30 },
            5
        },
    };

    I managed to get it to word by going the opposite way (though no doubt your way works too), i removed all the brackets except the first two, and it sprung to life
