    List

    In C, is there an equivilent of BASIC's list function?
    for example, in basic
    Code:
               {1,2,3}->L1 (L1 being list 1)
    means that L1 is a list of three numbers that are 1 2 and 3.
    is there something like this for c?

    Thanks for the help!
    Would say "If there's anything I can do to help you, just ask!" but you know way more than me.

    A list is a generic concept, not a concrete data structure. You can implement a list with all kinds of cool stuff. As already said, an array works, but a linked list is more commonly associated with the "list". It's also harder to create because you have to use a library or build one manually while arrays are a part of the language.
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
