    Classes and Structs

    Could someone show me an example of how to use a struct in a base class and then access the struct from a child class? Thanks for any help!

    class cBase_Class
                struct MyStruct
                       char name[20];
                       int age;
    class cChild : public cBase_Class
         //how do I access the struct in the base class?

    same way you would as if you had declared it in the derived class. With public inheritance all public members of the base class are also public members of the derived class.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
