Function returning structure in C

We can make return type of any function to be a structure. The very main thing to be noted in this case is that the function must be returning the variable of structure type.

Program to specify a structure as the return type of function.
#include<stdio.h>
struct data
{
int a,b;
};struct data show(struct data d)
{
++d.a;
–d.b;
return(d);
}
int main()
{

struct data d1={34,55};
struct data s;
s=show(d1);
printf(“\ns.a=%d”,s.a);
printf(“\ns.b=%d”,s.b);
return(0);
}

Output
s.a=35
s.b=54
