    Small help on doubly linked list.

    Sorry for the trouble, but this should be pretty trivial. Some of the code

    namespace List
      struct list_t {
        std::string name;
        list_t* prev;
        list_t* next;
      list_t* create(std::string name);
      list_t* add(list_t* ll, std::string name);
    List::list_t* List::create(std::string name)
      List::head = new List::list_t;
      head->prev = NULL;
      head->next = NULL;
      head->name = name;
      return List::head;
    List::list_t* List::add(List::list_t* list, std::string name)
      if(list == NULL)
        List::list_t* new_list = List::create(name);
        return new_list;
      list->next = List::add(list->next, name);
      return list;
    List = List::add(NULL, "CPlusPlus");
    List = List::add(List, "C");
    cout << list->name /*works*/
    cout << list->next->name /*doesn't work, program crashes here =(*/
    For some reason, the list is still empty after the first head. It's probably because the newly made list is a local variable when it's made and when it's returned the local variable is destroyed?

    You don't need to. Others can benefit from your problem and learn from it.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    They could benefit even more if you could post the solution you found.
