    is this a bug in borland c 5.5

    i am using borland command line tools for C programming

    when declaring an array of a structure that contains an array as a member, the program crashes but no compiler errors are given.

    i used to bypass the problem by making a separate module to include such array (another .C file), it works fine that way!!

    has anybody faced such problem? is it a bug or what?

    i am using the turbo linker TLink, not TLink32, because the 32-bit C modules are linked with other 16-bit modules, does this make a problem?

    Yes, almost certainly.
    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.
