*Hi, I am using Keil uVision3 and have written code in C which
includes three files as key.c,key.h and main.c. when I compile my
code as* **error C129: missing ';' before '.'** *for the line
exactly where I initialize my structure element to zero in*
**key.c**

*My code is as follows:*

*File* **main.c**

#include <REG51.H> #include "key.c" void main() { key_task(); while(1); }

*File* **key.h**

#ifndef KEYPAD_H_INCLUDED #define KEYPAD_H_INCLUDED sbit ke1=P2^0; sbit ke2=P2^1; sbit ke3=P2^2; sbit ke4=P2^3; sbit ds0=P3^4; sbit ds1=P3^5; sbit ds2=P3^6; sbit ds3=P3^7; typedef struct { unsigned char key_pres_cnt,key_rls_cnt,key_pres_flg,key_rls_flg,key_type,ket_status; }key; extern key k1,k2,k3,k4; enum key_stat{no_key_pres,key_pres}; void key_task(); #endif /*KEYPAD_H_INCLUDED*/

*File* **key.c**

#include <REG51.H> #include "key.h" key k1,k2,k3,k4; k1.key_pres_cnt=0; k1.key_pres_flg=0; k1.key_rls_cnt=0; k1.key_rls_flg=0; void key_task() { //Logic for first key if(ke1==no_key_pres) { if(k1.key_pres_cnt<10) k1.key_pres_cnt++; else { if(k1.key_pres_cnt) k1.key_pres_cnt--; } if(k1.key_pres_cnt>=10) { k1.key_pres_cnt=0; k1.key_pres_flg=1; } if(k1.key_pres_flg==1) ds0=0; if(ke1==key_pres) { if(k1.key_rls_cnt<10) k1.key_rls_cnt++; else { if(k1.key_rls_cnt) k1.key_rls_cnt--; } if(k1.key_rls_cnt>=10) { k1.key_rls_cnt=0; k1.key_rls_flg=1; k1.key_pres_flg=0; } if(k1.key_rls_flg==1) ds0=1; } } }

*Please help me*

*Thanks in advance*
