Yes!..that is what I meant.  Ive done that with the functions, but when
I try to do it with the variables, my compiler (DJGPP for dos) keeps
telling me that I cannot assign the pointer of my variable to a pointer
because it is not constant.  

struct vars
char *vname;
double *var;

struct vars variables[]
= {

and this does not work.
