    This is what I would do:

    1) Read the file in word-by-word using a loop to infile >> into a temp string.

    2) Assign the temp string into a node: new node->item = temp;

    3) Repeat the process until eof( )

    You mean a direction like the FAQ? I know for a fact that the topics of reading from files, and Linked Lists are both in there.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
