Help needed with structures
I'm beggining to work on a project for school which consists in creating a program for managing the pacients and doctors of a clinic.Doctors would have their personal data(name,age,address,speciality,number of pacients treated,etc.) and pacients would have(name,age,adress,number of visits to the clinic,date of visits to the clinic,etc.)
After searching and reading a bit about structures,still I'm not very clear with them in terms of data variables or organization.
First,I thought on organizing the structures as following,by creating two structures:
But then I thought,why would I repeat the variables name and age and address if both Pacients and Doctors use themand instead add them in another structure?So I thought in creating another structure that could hold those variables making them more generic:
So,in spite of thinking that the later solution looks best,what is your opinion?Anything that could help me clear this out and the overall concept of structures would be helpful!Thanks in advance!
struct Pacients p;
struct Doctors d;
