A structure is a user-defined data type. You have the ability to define a new type of data considerably more complex than the types we have been using. A structure is a collection of one or more variables, possibly of different types, grouped together under a single name for convenient handling. Structures are called Ã¢â‚¬Å“recordsÃ¢â‚¬Â in some languages, notably Pascal. Structures help organize complicated data, particularly in large programs, because they permit a group of related variables to be treated as a unit instead of as separate entities.
