structure inside a structure in C
Pls help me with this programm..


#define BUFFSIZE 256
#define SMALL_SIZE 16
#define MED_SIZE 64
#define MAX  16
#define PORT 5555

char buffer[BUFFSIZE];

struct students
    int n;
    char Name[MED_SIZE];
    char Status[SMALL_SIZE];

struct Sending{
    int seqno;
    struct students class;
    struct Sending *next;

int main(){
    struct Sending *snd=NULL;
//  struct students *td =NULL;
//  char buf[BUFFSIZE] = "\0";
    snd = (struct Sending *)malloc(sizeof(struct Sending));

    memset(snd.class,0,sizeof(struct students));
    strcpy(snd.class->Name ,"PRIYA");
    printf("%s\n" ,snd.class->Name );

memset(snd.class,0,sizeof(struct students));
this line will segfault because snd.class is not initialized. malloc some memory before usage

'snd' is a pointer, so it won't compile on the first place

    memset(snd->class,0,sizeof(struct students));
    strcpy(snd->class.Name ,"PRIYA");
    printf("%s\n" ,snd->class.Name );


Avoid strcpy(); use strncpy() instead to avoid the possibility of overrunning a buffer.
