As far as I know, In C language comparison operator == works with predefined datatypes.
Structure is a user defined data type that's why == does not work.
Assume one structure is defined named as "A".
Now I created two variables of structure A such as var1 and var2
Better to use memory comparison memcmp(&var1, &var2, sizeof(A)) to compare user defined data types.
