    passing structure to function

    Anyone know why I can't pass the structure to the function this way????

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    
    void diplay_jock(athlete players) {
    
    
    printf("%s %s is ranked %d and earns %.2f\n", players.last_name, players.first_name, players.rank, players.salary);
    
    }
    
    	
    
    int main (void) {
    
    
      struct athlete {
      char last_name[25];
      char first_name [20];
      int rank;
      float salary;
    } players = {"Kloc", "Daniel", 2, 100000};
    
    display_jock(players);
    
    return 0;
    }

    You should define the struct before you define the function.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
