A struct can bundle attributes together. If you create a struct, you can set a couple of variables for that struct. Those variables can be of any datatype.
A key difference from an array is that elements of an array are all of the same datatype. That is not the case with a struct.
If you want to combine variables, structs are the way to go. Unlike the concept of object oriented programming, they are just data holders.
The ruby example creates a new struct. Then it sets the variables.
The program bundles the variables (job, name) into a struct named Person.Then that structure can be used to set variables.
In this example the struct has only two variables, but a struct can have as many as you need.
You can create multiple items with the same struct, all with different values. Elements of a struct can be accessed immediately.
