  1. Hi All, Im trying to solve a problem with C struct. This is the structure of the struct in header file that is 'included': struct plantbl { char max_harmonic[9]; char max_power_of_t; signed char *arg_tbl; double *lon_tbl; double *lat_tbl; double *rad_tbl; double distance; }; To use this struct, the current code is in this format: static struct plantbl FAR mer404 = { { 11, 14, 10, 11, 4, 5, 2, 0, 0,}, 6, merargs, mertabl, mertabb, mertabr, 3.8709830979999998e-01, }; However the above code produces this error: /Users/bliss/Documents/iPhone_Programming/My XCode 4.1 Apps/SwissTest/swemptab.c:1091: error: variable 'mer404' has initializer but incomplete type FAR btw is a Macro defined as: # ifndef FAR # define FAR # endif # define MALLOC malloc # define CALLOC calloc # define FREE free #else # ifndef FAR # define FAR far # endif # ifdef __BORLANDC__ # include <alloc.h> # define MALLOC farmalloc # define CALLOC farcalloc # define FREE farfree # else # define MALLOC _fmalloc # define CALLOC _fcalloc # define FREE _ffree # endif #endif So anyway...I decide to recode the mer404 to something I thought will be equivalent to the intention of the code above but hopefully does not result in a error... so I changed the code to: char placeholder[9] = { 11, 14, 10, 11, 4, 5, 2, 0, 0,}; static struct plantbl FAR mer404 = { placeholder, 6, merargs, mertabl, mertabb, mertabr, 3.8709830979999998e-01, }; but I still get the following error: /Users/bliss/Documents/iPhone_Programming/My XCode 4.1 Apps/SwissTest/swemptab.c:1080: error: variable 'mer404' has initializer but incomplete type Now I don't understand why this would be happening....I am trying to feed in values to each of the 7 elements/properties of the struct plantabl.......... Can someone enlighten me on what to do to solve this problem please??? Thank you very much.
