Hello,

I am trying to insert a new node into a doubly linked list before the node pointed to by Cur.

I have the following but i am not sure if i am right. Please advise.

P->next=cur;
P->before=cur->before;
P->before->next=P;
P->next->before=P;

thanks

Looks okay.  For total safety, I'd replace the equals sign with a macro that does the assignment but also checks for null pointers and a valid node password.  When I write this kind of code, I usually get tripped up at leastra couple times before all the erors are filtered out.   Something like:

#define CarefulAssign(x) ((x)==NULL || (x)->pw != ThePw ? NULL, printf("bad assign of ##x## at line __LINE__!!\n" ): (x) )


Regards,
