    Question Simple problem but dont know the reason..

    Hi all,
    i'm new to c and while compiling small snippet of code on gcc its showing "expected specifier-qualifier-list before private" error.I'm not able to find out whats the reason causing this problem.if anyone's suggestions to solve this would be a great help.
    here is my code,

    Code:
    typedef struct
    {
      private:   // in this line i'm getting error as expected specifier-qualifier-list    
                       //before private
      int choice;
    
      public:
      void (*fun_ptr[2])();
      int add();
      int pause();
    
      void checkState(int nChoice)
      {
        if(nChoice == CONTINUE)
        {
           fun_ptr[0] = add ;
        }
    
        else if (nChoice == STOP)
        {
          fun_ptr[1] = pause ;
        }
    
        else
        {
         printf("u entered a wrong choice...exiting... ");
         exit(1);
        }
      }
    } exeState;
    
    
    int main()
    {
      //exeState s;
      printf("enter ur choice 1 to start the process of addtion...2 for pausing...");
      //scanf("%d", &s.choice);
      //s.checkState(s.choice);
      getchar();
      return 0;
    }

    Try compiling with g++ (the C++ compiler in the gnu collection), rather than gcc (which compiles C by default).

    I get legitimate errors with g++ from your code, but not the one you are reporting.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
