Main Question or Discussion Point

I am looking for a word that means "a set of conditions". I was going to use "case", but that is a reserved word in C. Any thoughts?

"State", as in the "state" of a system or object?

Thank you, but I am using "state" for another data type already. What do you think about "instance"?

Instance usually refers to a single object or moment in time, a reference to a state of existance, not a reference to the condition of that state.

You could always prefix "state" with a object qualifier, such as object_xyz_state, ...

Ok, so I won't use instance. I think I will replace my previously name "state" data type with instruction. Because currently the instructions are nested in the "state" type, but the state can be nested within the "instruction" type. So state will be replaced by "instruction", and I can use "state" for a set of conditions. Yes, that is what I will do. Thanks for helping me with this rcgldr.
