Re: [cc65] returning structs

Well, its not as pretty as returning a struct by value, but here's something
of what I did:  I created a struct in the main function, then sent it into
another function by reference (pointer).  Made the changes inside the
function, which of course then were available back in the main function.

Id like to see an example though of what you're refering to though.  If Im
reading you right, it seems that when you return from the called function,
the data would be lost since the called function's struct is local to that
