This is a discussion on linked list within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; can I access a particular element of a list directly, or must I go through the whole list first?...

    You have to traverse the list
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
