Asking if elements in struct arre zero

If I have:

struct one_{
unsigned int one_1;
unsigned short one_2;
unsigned short one_3;
};

struct two_{
unsigned int two_1;
unsigned short two_2;
unsigned char two_3;
};

struct mystruct{
struct one_ one;
struct two_ two;
}mystruct1;

Then could I by any change ask on the value of the whole struct mystruct1,
that is all the elements in the struct in one call? I want to do something
like (in pseudo like language):

if(mystruct1 == 0) { print("All elements of mystruct1 is zero");}
Best Regards

while ((c = getc(in)) != EOF) {
next_tag = in_tag;
if (c == '<')
in_tag = 1;
If you replace above line with:

in_tag = next_tag = 1;

the code actually works. ;-)
else if (c == '>')
next_tag = 0;
putc(c, in_tag ? tag : txt);
in_tag = next_tag;
}
}

Hmmmm... thought this thread was dying... guess not?

I don't know about text 'becoming' a universal medium.


Long ago, there were an awful lot of IBM 3270/SNA terminals!
Another big item was DEC VT*** terminals. Neither were plain
text.
HTML is merely another expression of text, with tags, to say how
it should be 'marked up'.
Agreed, however the whole point is that 'mark up'.
Whether it's an HTML email or an XHTML usnet message, the majority
of the useful context still text. Why use HTML to format text when
text is already easilly formatted in not-HTML?
Because (I claim) true italics, bold & underline is more "transparen t"
(see previous posts) than their ASCII equivalents.
Anyone who says a picture is worth 1,000 words doesn't have enough
imagination... :)
Probably true, but would you rather have a map to a complicated
destination or written instructions? (Actually, this varies by
person.) The interesting thing is, a map allows you to design
alternate routes if there turns out to be a problem with the
designated one.
There's no way in hell you can eliminate the TTY, at least not
until corporations rule the world entirely.
(Ah, you've seen ROLLERBALL... :-)
Just look at what you can do on a text console which /cannot/ be
done in GUI land!


Yes, but I'm not talking about user interfaces. (And I agree very
much.) I'm talking about written communications.

You know, I'm surprised such doesn't exist. You'd think there
would be enough decent HTML parser libraries out there that it
wouldn't be very difficult.

Hmmm... wonder if there's any money in it.....

I don't think it will become universal as long as programmers
are around, because the sheer flexibility that text gives you
is hard to beat.


Perhaps, but there are a LOT more non-programmers on amUSENET
these days. We're severely outnumbered!

But we're discussing comp.lang.c, not Usenet. In the context of comp.lang.c,
I sincerely hope that there are more programmers than non-programmers.

No, I've been talking about amUSENET.

If I'm right and HTML (or similar) does become a standard on
amUSENET, do you expect that you'll be able to keep clc TTY?

What is this amuseNET you speak of? Surely it is not the same
thing as the Usenet. Perhaps the soul of the argument is that you
believe to be a part of this 'amuseNET', which obviously favors
HTML for amusement purposes.

Usenet is off-topic in comp.lang.c. :-)

If we can, then HTML (or similar) is not really a Usenet standard.

And if we can't, perhaps many of us may stop bothering to use Usenet
altogether. Perhaps we'll find other, more efficient ways of communicating.
Or perhaps we'll just stop communicating. Some, of course, will plough on
through all the tags, and I admire them for their devotion. I don't think
I'll be one of them.

afaik, Dude /does/ partake of serious conversation son usenet,
but has seen so many ridiculous/ludicrous arguments that he
prefers to call it "amuse-net" (emphasis on amuse).

Well, you're right, there: on alt.fan.schildt HTML is probably
acceptable and on-topic. On comp.lang.c it is not, thank heavens.
