I finished reading the article on Linked Lists in C++, and I don't get...well, I don't get pretty much anything.
The way that the tutorial described linked lists seemed somewhat vague unspecific, at least to me, and the example code didn't help much, like it usually does. In fact, when I thought I knew what the explanation was trying to say, I would look at the code and it would make me doubt my understanding. The same would happen the other way around.
Can someone, briefly, explain how to use linked lists, how/why they work, and how/why they are useful? Or at least point me somewhere that explains it in a different way?
