Hi,
I want to use a linked list in c, and I saw that there's a file called list.h in the include of visual studio... Is that what I'm supposed to use? If so, can you please give me an example of how to do that?
Thanks,
Itsik

If this is you home assignment, you need to write everything on your own ... you cannot use the list.h that is already there ... I think it is C++ lib file ... so you cannot use it for a C programming assignment any way

This is a home assignment, but the point is not using a linked list, this is something I want to do... THe point is drawing something with OpenGL... I found out about CList, can anyone give me an example of using it?

Thanks,
Itsik

#include <list.h>

// or new-style header:
// #include <list>
// using namespace std;

typedef list<int> INT_LIST;


INT_LIST list;

list.push_back(1);
list.push_back(2);
list.push_back(3);


INT_LIST::iterator theIterator;

for (theIterator = list.begin(); iterator != list.end(); theIterator++)
{
    printf("%d\n", *theIterator);
}

list.clear();

If you want to use Microsoft's CList, check out the COLLECT example at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vcsample/html/_sample_mfc_COLLECT.asp. Be warned that this is MFC, which means that it is non-standard C++ and should be discussed at http:/Programming/Programming_Languages/MFC/ .

AlexFM's suggestion to use the STL containers is standard C++ and should be discussed at http:/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/ . If it is neither here nor there to you, I'd go with AlexFM's suggestion.

Poor old vanilla C doesn't have containers in its libraries and non-specific requests for help in implementing linked lists in C usually get followed up by accusations of homework cheating.... and quite rightly so :-)
