in reply to Re: Convert Non-standard C struct data to standard C struct
in thread Change the data to have the format which is like a C struct.

That doesn't look like any "standard C" I've ever seen?

Yeah, I agree. I haven't written C code for the last five or six years, but, to me, a standard C struct declaration usually looks more like this:

struct date { int day; int month; int year; } struct my_record_type { long key; int size; char text[128]; struct date birthdate; }

    Yup! Pre-ANSI C allowed untyped vars to default to ints, but that did not extend to struct members; you cannot initialise struct members individually; and you don't assign the curlies to the tagname

      Yes, and I also chose my example in a way to show how to declare nested structures, which is quite different from the OP's example.
