    HashTable in a struct

    Hi All,

    I keep getting these errors when I compile my hash table within a struct:

    error: syntax error before 'List'
    warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
    This is the code of what I have done, hash.h contains all the required functions and when hashStruct is commented out it works fine.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdbool.h>
    #include "hash.h"
    
    struct  hashStruct
    {
        List hashTable[MAXTABLE];
        int second variable;
    }
    typedef struct hashStruct test;
    
    int main()
    {
        test myHash;
        List hashTable[MAXTABLE];     // This works
        initialiseHash(myHash.hashTable);
        return 1;
    }
    I am able to declare the hash table in the same way without it being in a struct, any ideas whats wrong?

    A brief background, this hash table is part of a much larger program with a large struct that contains alot of useful information. I would prefer to just have the hash table accessible inside this struct then have to pass it around seperately.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Whent it says "no semicolon at end of struct", that's pretty much what it means.
    Code:
    struct  hashStruct
    {
        List hashTable[MAXTABLE];
        int second variable;
    } <----- Where is your semicolon?
    It doesn't get much clearer than that.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
