expected unqualified-id before { token in C


Hi all,
I've just updated from Debian Etch to Lenny, which in turn updates GCC to 4.3 (?). This has cause a host of error, most of which I can solve however I'm getting the above error in code which has worked for years. The code is related to arrays of structures. Basically I have

typedef struct array_type=
{
int a;
int b;
int c;

}ARRAY_TYPE;

then

ARRAY_TYPE ARAYUSED[]=
{
{0,0,0},
{0,0,0},
{0,0,0},
};

(the real code is to do with loading sprites but the above is a basic idea of what I normally do)

Can anyone advise? Thanks

Code:
typedef struct array_type=
The equal sign shouldn't be there (typo?), after removing that, it compiles for me:

Code:
~/tmp$ cat a.c
typedef struct array_type {
    int a;
    int b;
    int c;
} ARRAY_TYPE;

ARRAY_TYPE ARAYUSED[] = {
    {0,0,0},
    {0,0,0},
    {0,0,0},
};
~/tmp$ gcc -c -Wall -ansi -pedantic a.c
~/tmp$ gcc --version
gcc (Debian 4.3.3-3) 4.3.3

Yes thanks a typo. As was my original error. I spend hours updating code from gcc 3.7 to 4.3 :s
