    typedef declaration helps to make source code of a C program more readable. Its purpose is to redefine the name of an existing variable type. It provides a short and meaningful way to call a data type. typedef is useful when the name of the data type is long. Use of typedef can reduce length and complexity of data types.
    Note: Usually uppercase letters are used to make it clear that we are dealing with our own data type.
    Example:
    struct employee {
    char name[20];
    int age;
    };
    struct employee e;
    The above declaration of the structure would be easy to use when renamed using typedef as:
    struct employee {
    char name[20];
    int age;
    };
    typedef struct employee EMP;
    EMP e1, e2;
