    Doubt on Linked lists and doubly LL!

    hello all,

    I have problem with linked lists.
    In calling functions(add,delete) using single pointer parameter(ie. add(struct node *p,char value)).

    .please, any one give me an idea and example program to do clearly understand both single and doubly LL concepts.

    pls, help me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Og understand. Og have problem too.

    If you understand pointers, linked lists should come with a "Oh! That does make sense!". If they didn't:
    Linked lists are merely lists where, instead of allocating the entire list at a time (like arrays), you allocate memory for each item at a time. Since these items are going to be in random locations in memory, they have to be "linked" together: In a singly linked list, each item knows where the next item is, and in a doubly linked list they know where the next and previous item is.

    A singly linked list remembers where the next item is via a pointer to it, like such:
    struct listitem
      int data;
      char moredata[20];
      struct listitem *next_item;
    To keep track of the list as a whole, all you need is a pointer to the first item. For the last item, next_item would be NULL.

    Any specifics that confuse you? You can Google "linked list" for some info...
    long time; /* know C? */
    Unprecedented performance: Nothing ever ran this slow before.
    Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
    Real Programmers confuse Halloween and Christmas, because dec 25 == oct 31.
