Hey ppl,

any body can tell me how to implement a linked list without using pointers in C. In one of my interviews they have asked this question...any ideas?

    :
    It is possible when the next and previous items in a node are copied each time a node is added.
    But doing so requires massive storage and maintenance, since deleting a node requires copying the data of all subsequent nodes one node to the front. In fact, that's not really a linked list anymore.
    I don't think anyone has ever implemented a linked list without pointer. It has no advantages and big disadvantages.
