I am lost with the C time tm struct

I am transfering old libs from bcc32 to tcc. I am blocked by this one in the marked line. Tcc says "structure or union expected".

Question: what is wrong with tcc.

The rest of the function is not debugged yet, tcc seems to proceed one problem at a time.
Thank you for your help.

long m_time(long tim0)
{
long   tx;
int    k;
int    mod;
int    mois, an;
struct tm * t;
time_t timer;
char   fig[10];
int    i;

   time(&timer);
   t=localtime(&timer);
   sprintf(mc_eurodate,"%02d/%02d/%02d %02d:%02d:%02d",
           t.tm_mday,t.tm_mon,t.tm_year+1900,t.tm_hour,t.tm_min,t.tm_sec);    <=== error line.
   sprintf(mc_univdate,"%04d/%02d/%02d %02d:%02d:%02d",

   memset(fig,' ',9);
   k=7;

      else if (mod<13)  fig[k]=mod+'A'+1;
      else if (mod<24)  fig[k]=mod+'A'+2;

Hi versailles,

the problem IMO is you use '.' instead of '->' to access members of 't' (which is a pointer).

So you should replace all statements like ' t.tm_mda' with ' t->tm_mda'.

Hope that helps,

Silly of mine. I am somewhat rusty with my C. I change compiler because BCC32 is out of commission now.
Thank you!
