    Question Linked Lists

    A singly linked list contains ten nodes. The data in the nodes are variables of type int. How much overhead storage is used in order to maintain this list? Would you say this is effiecient? how much overhead would you have if the list was a doubly linked list?

    run sizeof(int), then sizeof(CNode*), then do some simple math.
