Quick n easy, I hope
I have defined a class
class module{
   void(*method)(void)
};

and an object of that class:
module firstlatt;

I have defined a function with the same name:
void firstlatt(void){}

and I want to make the 'method' pointer point to this function.

What is the correct syntax for assigning the pointer?

Thank you

You can't do have the variable & function of the same name in scope of each other. You'll have to either use different names or use namespaces

e.g. (renaming)
class module {
public:  // <--- NEW
   void(*method)(void) ;
};

void firstlatt(void){}

module mFirstLatt; // <-- NEW NAME

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
  mFirstLatt.method = firstlatt;

  return 0;
}

e.g. (namespaces)
class module {
public:  // <--- NEW
   void(*method)(void) ;
};

namespace module_funcs {
void firstlatt(void){}
};

module firstlatt; // <-- NEW NAME

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
      firstlatt.method = module_funcs::firstlatt;

      return 0;
}
