    lists

    Would anybody happen to have a program that reads in a file into a linked list but doesn't need dummy values to initialise the list?
    So when u read in a file into a linked list u can store the values just from the file read instead of having to manually enter dummy values to initialise the list and then reading in the file.

    You start with the first node. When you have read the first line of data and put it in the first node. Then if there is another line, you create a second node and let the first node point to this second node. You fill the second note. And this process goes on until you have reached the last line of data.
