Structures: combining data elements

A data structure is defined using the struct keyword. It lets you combine data items of different types. The data items that make up a struct are called elements.

A struct is a user defined data type. A struct usually begins with an Uppercase letter.

Once the struct is defined, you can declare data items to be that type.
