    struct DPCell and DPCell are 2 different things in C
    you have no struct DPCell defined in your code

    use
    Code:
    typedef struct DPCell  { char rowChar ...
    to do so
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
