This is a discussion on how to create a linked list for a structure within a structure? within the C Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; Code: typedef struct { int tag; char* buffer; } IOEntry; struct { IOEntry ioEntry; IOEntry* next; }; this is like ...

    how to create a linked list for a structure within a structure?

    Code:
     typedef struct {
      int tag;
      char* buffer;
    } IOEntry;
    
    struct {
      IOEntry ioEntry;
      IOEntry* next;
    };
    this is like a structure within another strucuture....

    just give me the implementation for adding a new node with tag and buffer and how point it to next node...since two structures are involved i m getting confused....

    That doesn't seem quite right.

    I'd expect it to be something like this:
    Code:
     typedef struct {
      int tag;
      char* buffer;
    } IOEntry;
    
    struct IONode {
      IOEntry ioEntry;
      struct IONode* next;
    };
    (Or something to that extent).

    What have you tried so far with regards to making a linked list?
