I almost lost touch with C and C++ . I am not sure what i provide below is correct. Anyway i am just giving it a try. Here is the corrected code. struct STUDENT { char nm[20]; int age; }student; void main() { printf("\n enter name "); gets(student.nm); printf(" YOUR NAME IS%S ",student.nm); } Is that correct?

Ohh !! i m late... swaroop has already done everything... :) ha.haa Just fun.... well... i have a another point, which may not be related to this problem but still important.. if u run you program on g++ (or any ANSI standard compiler) then this will give u compilation errorr.... why ???? see the first line ... "void main()' it means... main() can not return any value... In ANSI, this is wrong... this program will compile on Microsoft VC6 or VC7 ... but not on g++. so we have to write it like 'int main()' and in the last line 'return errorCode' :) Weell... guys.. keep it up these discussions.. really intresting.... good job.

I hope you would be early next time ;). Ok i too found out this problem with gcc. I actually don't think it is an error with gcc compiler. According to latest ANSI standards I think we need to return an integer to a main(). So the above program should be struct STUDENT { char nm[20]; int age; }student; int main() { printf("\n enter name "); gets(student.nm); printf(" YOUR NAME IS%s ",student.nm); return 0; } in order to be executed with gcc.

have u tried it with g++. Which version of gcc u r using? After ur comment, i run a sample program and it is giving me 'error' with g++? I think we have different versions of compiler...

Did u use the same program that i have listed above? Any way it is working for me. I am using the latest gcc version that came with opensuse 10.2. Maybe some bug with your version. Would you mind posting those errors here?

I'm not so much coding in C language but this seems to me to be an error: }student; I don't see what 'student;' do here after closed bracket?.. Only if you are going to call Sub code But I guess that must be done with some prefix, like ' &student; ' .

I guess you can't initialise a variable inside a data structure. Is it correct? I am not sure because I am onto java..Thanks

you are right (it is an error in c and c++ but not in java) but still there is another error
