    ADT's

    I am not looking for code just definitions

    What would be an example of how a Linked List would be used in a operating system?
    What would be an example of how a Queue would be used in a operating system?
    What would be an example of how a Stack would be used in a operating system?
    What is the definition of a Virtual function?

    >Linked List
    See below, the queue would most likely be implemented as a linked list.

    >Queue
    Maintaining a list of printing jobs and handling them with at least some vestige of sanity. Or for job switching in the kernel if you meant something a little lower level.

    >Stack
    Spare memory given to a process for internal needs.

    >What is the definition of a Virtual function?
    Looky!
    The information given in this message is known to work on FreeBSD 4.8 STABLE.
