this is a project i have to do for uni
but i'm not sure if i have to use structs?
i have to create a board with ACSII characters and use 4 jewels as character symbols. i don't see where i have to use structs? but my friend has in his report
i've only learnt stuff like
scanf and printf
while, if, for.
so just in case i future questions about the project. in case i'm having trouble with the code.
I suppose this is C and not C++ (since you are using printf and scanf). Well if all you are going to do is print a board with a specified size and using jewels as markers I think you can about with an array (2D for simplicity).
could i add borders in an an array for the board? it'll be a 6x6 board
Either add borders in the array or create a special routine to draw the borders.
If you need to use structs as part of the requirement for the assignment then adding that to your program should be easy. Just make a struct to hold all of the data for a character, then create an instance for each of your characters.
Do you know what it means to create an instance of something? If not I'll gladly explain better.
This might get you started. I will use the non-object oriented approach though it will be hard for me.
There is a much better way to do things but I tried to keep it simple. Using structs would be a much better approach and better yet using C++ classes would be even better. But I leave that to you.

for (int j=-1;j<7;j++)
if (i==-1 || i==7 || j==-1 || j==7)
