    a handy data structure through c

    friends, can we make a handy data structure that will have both the simplicity of array and good memory utilization like linked list and then just #include the code to use in program as one desires. java has got arraylists and the exception handling ..do we need it for c also?

    It's not possible, you will get an interface that is nothing like the simplicity of an array.

    Yes, as Subsonics already pointed out you can't have an animal with the agility and size of a mouse and the muscle mass of an elephant.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.
