yes, the difference is for example by using 'private' and 'public' in a class

The main difference between a struct and a class is that in a struct, the members are by default public.  Bur in a class, the memeber are private unless you use public:

struct MyStruct : public MyOtherStruct
{
  int nThisIsPublic;
};

class MyClass : public MyOtherClass
{
  int nThisIsPrivate;
public:
  int nThisIsPublic;
}

If I use struct I suppose members are called by "." not "->" and members of base class too?

In both cases, . and -> are used the same.  . is member of structure and -> is member of pointer-to structure.  This is C++ 101
