    Question asn.1

    Hi dears,

    I have a confuse with relation between C and asn.1
    the Telecom project which I've worked on it have .C/.h and .asn.1 files.
    is it right that we could derive structure in C from asn.1 file?
    and does this structures have the same name of the SEQUENCE in asn.1 with adding _t and _s using typedef ?

    There isn't one.

    C is a programming language.
    ASN.1 is an IDL - Interface Description Language ( ASN.1 - Wikipedia )

    To be specific:
    C is used for far more things than implementing ASN.1 encoders and decoders.
    You can implement ASN.1 encoders and decoders in any programming language that takes your fancy.

    Yes, there are probably tools in your organisation to do just that.

    No idea, it depends on what tool you use as to what naming convention they adopt.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
