Sure, that's what malloc() is for.
Code: [Select]
struct data *my_data = (struct data *)malloc(sizeof(struct data));

PS: You also might want to check the online help for the functions free(), calloc() and realloc()  ;)

Thanks Ralf.  I've done this before.  I think I was just suffering from brain rot.  Had to re-educate myself. :P
