- Linked lists are considered an advanced C language topic.…That's because the linked list construction…uses pointers and memory allocation.…It's also a bit crazy to describe,…so I will be patient.…In this movie, you'll see how a linked list…is set up and configured.…I'll demonstrate how it's used…and how to access its members.…All this will be shown one step at a time,…so hang on.…In this code, the stats structure is defined.…
A pointer to that structure is declared at line 10.…Memory is allocated for the structure at line 14.…The structure is filled on lines 22 through 24.…Finally, the printf statement starting at line 27…displays the structure's values.…Build and run this code.…I'll type in a pitiful amount.…And it works.…Say you wanted to create more of these structures…by allocating additional chunks of memory.…
You could put them into an array.…An array of structures is something…that's completely possible in the C language.…But how big would you make the array?…If you run a bank, and you need this code…to keep track of the accounts,…
