    it's a custom data type i'd presume since 'emp' is not a keyword.

    It is probably a struct.

    typedef struct Emp
    {
    ...
    };


    Emp *p; //<-- A pointer to a struct of "Emp"-Type
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp
