Hello, I work at the U.S. Department of Labor, on the Unemployment Insurance program. I am working on developing a new Benefit Financing model for the state of Oregon, and I am having an issue with passing a struct between mutiple .c and .cfn files( the .cfn files are for the C cursor screens). The srtuct in question foloews:

extern struct{
        double x[6][30];
        double xtxy[6][5];
        double b[6];
        double bstde[6];
        double tval[6];
        double bset[3][6];
        double stats[6];
        double ajrsq,ystde,ymse,xtra1,xtra2,syy;}regrs_;

The struct is declared first in the main .c module, bsyrhd.c, and is further defined in a .cfn called later, invxtx5.cfn. Compiling the screen gives me the error:

"invxtx5.cfn", line 15: identifier redeclared: regrs_
        current : struct  {array[6] of array[30] of double x, array[6] of array[5] of double xtxy, array[6] of double b, array[6] of double bstde, array[6] of double tval, array[3] of array[6] of double bset, array[6] of double stats, double ajrsq, double ystde, double ymse, double xtra1, double xtra2, double syy}
        previous: struct  {array[6] of array[30] of double x, array[6] of array[5] of double xtxy, array[6] of double b, array[6] of double bstde, array[6] of double tval, array[3] of array[6] of double bset, array[6] of double stats, double ajrsq, double ystde, double ymse, double xtra1, double xtra2, double syy} : "bsyrhd.c", line 40

It seems obvious that I should just remove the declaration of the struct from invxtx5.cfn. However, when I do that, iget this error:

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
exp                                 bsyrhd.o
log                                 bsyrhd.o
pow                                 bsyrhd.o
fabs                                bsyrhd.o
sqrt                                bsyrhd.o
regrs_                              bsyrhd.o

My next thought was to remove the struct declaration from bsyrhd.c and put in back into invxtx5.cfn. When I do that, this is what happens:

Actually, there are more error messages than this, but the point is that none of the other cfns called by bsyrhd.c can find the struct without it being delacred in bsyrhd.c. My last try was to remove the extern part of the declaration from either the .c file or the .cfn file, but in both cases, I just received the redeclare error again. I do not know what to try next to resolve this issue. Any help with this problem is greatly appreciated.

Re. Tinstaafl's suggestion. Just make sure you guard the header from being included multiple times, or you will will have the same problem. Do you know how that works?

I have used .h files files frequently, my concern here was that screens are different compiling logic, because of the include of the <curses.h> GNU library, from OpenSource. My concern has sadly become reality, since the creation of the .h file below:

produces the following compiling errors:

I created the .h file in the same format the other .h files in the Benefit Financing Model. However, the .h files are used in the simulation code, which do not include <curses.h> ( They are the model in model-view-controller, the screens are the view). For reference, here is a .h file I use which compiles cleanly:

I use this .h file to compile the Financial Forecast simulation code, and it compiles cleanly. Since I used the same format to create the regsh.h file, I am not sure where the problem is occuring, other than the <curses.h> inclusion requires a special .h format.

The problem with the .h file turned out to be in the command line, I needed to add the -lm option to the compiler call. The screen compiles fine now.
