list

C doubly linked list implementation.

API

Below is the public api currently provided by "list".

list_t *list_new();

Allocate and initialize a list.

list_t *mylist = list_new();

list_node_t *list_node_new(void *val)

Allocate and initialize a list_node_t with the given val.

list_node_t *node = list_node_new("my value");
node->val; // "my value"

list_node_ * list_rpush(list_t_ *self, list_node_t *node)

Append node to self, returning node.

 list_rpush(list, list_node_new("value"));
 list->tail->val; // "value"

list_node_t * list_rpop(list *self)

Return / detach node from the end of the list, or NULL.

list_node_t *last = list_pop(names);

list_node_t *list_lpush(list *self, list_node_t *node)

Prepend node to self, returning node.

list_lpush(list, list_node_new("value"));
list->head->val; // "value"

list_node_t *list_find(list *self, void *val)

Return the list_node_t containing val or NULL.

list_node_t *node = list_find(list, "some value");

list_node_t *list_at(list *self, int index)

Return the list_node_t at the given index, where index may also be a negative integer indicating an index from the list tail.

list_at(list, 0);  // first
list_at(list, 1);  // second
list_at(list, -1); // last
list_at(list, -3); // third last

void list_remove(list *self, list_node_t *node)

Remove node from the list, freeing it and it's value.

list_remove(list, node);

void list_destroy(list *self)

Free the list and all nodes.

list_destroy(list);

list_iterator_t *list_iterator_new(list *list, list_direction_t direction)

Allocate and initialize a list_iterator_t with the given direction, where direction may be LIST_HEAD or LIST_TAIL.

list_node_t *node;
list_iterator_t *it = list_iterator_new(list, LIST_HEAD);
while ((node = list_iterator_next(it))) {
    puts(node->val);
}  

list_node_t *list_iterator_next(list_iterator_t *self)

Return the next list_node_t or NULL.

void list_iterator_destroy(list_iterator_t *self);

Free the iterator only.

list_iterator_destroy(it);

Examples

list iteration:

list_t *langs = list_new();

list_node_t *c = list_rpush(langs, list_node_new("c"));
list_node_t *js = list_rpush(langs, list_node_new("js"));
list_node_t *ruby = list_rpush(langs, list_node_new("ruby"));

list_node_t *node;
list_iterator_t *it = list_iterator_new(langs, LIST_HEAD);
while ((node = list_iterator_next(it))) {
    puts(node->val);
}

list_iterator_destroy(it);
list_destroy(langs);

stdout:

c
js
ruby
