struct{

	char* wep_name;
	char* name;
} test_player = {
	100,
	10,

	"tom"
};

how to i access the members of test_player ?

Hello tomtetlaw,

As JugglerDrummer mentioned above, you would use the member access operator "." For more information on the operator and structures in general (including pointers to structures and the member access operator through a pointer "->") you should take a look at the following website:
http://cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/structures/

when i use the . i get these errors:
main.cpp

Post your code so we can see what you have on the lines that you're receiving errors on.

OK, that's your code, but WHERE is it? If line 12 is not inside of a function, you have problems. If it's before main, outside of a function, try sticking it in main and see if it works better. You'll get the same error if you stick something like this in the global scope:

int a = 6;
a = 8;

Second line gives an error. Stick it in main.

I am not sure about this , But does this happen because all of the global elements are constructed only at the start of main ?
