    string doesn't print in structure

    I am trying to create the record of student without string.h header file

    My code

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    struct student
    {
       char name [10];
       int age;
       float hight ;
       char section;
       
    }student1;
     
    int main()
    {
    	student1.name[10] = "shyama";
    	student1.age = 18;
    	student1.hight = 5.8;
    	student1.section = 'A';
         
        printf(" name %s \n", student1.name);	
        printf(" age %d \n",  student1.age);  
        printf(" hight %f \n", student1.hight);
        printf(" section %c \n", student1.section);   
     
       return 0;
    }
    Result
    name
    age 18
    hight 5.800000
    section A

    Why the name of student doesn't print ?

    Probably because student1.name[10] is not an array (or char *) but... a single character.

    You'll need to copy the student's name into the array somehow

    Maybe
    Code:
    snprintf(student1.name, 10, "%s", "shyama");

    > student1.name[10] = "shyama";

    Your compiler should warn you about this.... Up your warnings.

    name[10] sets you up indices from 0 through 9. Maybe use strcpy(student1.name , "shyama")
