hi,

Is it possible to struck linked at some certain points has more than one continue link?

for example, A network A-->B-->C then C can go both D and E at same time.......something like that

I search linked list examples, they always follow one by one sequence, so is it possible to set some certain situation has multiple path?
If yes, could you give me some sample code

thanks

Hi rmtogether,

It is possible but the resulting data structure would not technically be a linked list ... also the format/structure of this branchng node could be different from that of other nodes ... What you seem to be looking for here is a directed acyclic graph or DAG

Hi rmtogether,

> (for network graph)
A graph is a much better data structure to use for network graphs ... In case you have one way connections in the network, you can use a directed graph.
