error: storage size of 'frm' isn't known

When I compile the code snipets below I'm producing the error: storage
size of 'frm' isn't known.

dll.h :
/*
* File: dll.cpp
* Defines the data link layer's interface.
*/

#ifndef __FRAME_
#define __FRAME_

typedef unsigned int frame_kind;
typedef unsigned int seq_nr;

struct {
frame_kind kind;
seq_nr seq;
seq_nr ack;
char data[100];
}; frame

#endif

dataLinkSend() :
void dataLinkSend(int sd, char* data, seq_nr last) {
struct frame frm;

frm.kind = data;
frm.seq = (last++)%3;
frm.ack = last;
frm.data = data;

if(send(sd, frm, sizeof(frm), 0) < 0) {
fprintf(stderr, "Couldn't send frm\n");
exit(1);
}
}

If you need the whole file that dataLinkSend() id in, let me know and I
can post it.

Shift the tag:

struct frame {
frame_kind kind;
seq_nr seq;
seq_nr ack;
char data[100];
};

Please provide a compiling minimal example inserted in your
message by copy and paste. Otherwise, important information
or the error itself may be missing or people may spot errors
that were not there in the original version.

This must not compile.

You mean:
struct frame {
....
};

struct frame frm;
As you did not really create the type "struct frame" above,
this type is not known, and so is its size...

I suppose it could be more complex than this but..

struct {
frame_kind kind;
seq_nr seq;
seq_nr ack;
char data[100];
}; frame
^
...kills it for me. Should be..

struct {
frame_kind kind;
seq_nr seq;
seq_nr ack;
char data[100];
} frame;

This was a mistake. I need more rest. Should be..

struct frame {
frame_kind kind;
seq_nr seq;
seq_nr ack;
char data[100];
};

I'll go lie down now. See y'all later.
