Types of linked lists

The basic types of linked lists:

  • Singly linked list - forward links only
  • Doubly linked list - forward and backward links at each node
  • Circular linked list - end node points to front node, more efficient use of memory

Singly linked list

See Linked Lists/Python/Single

Basic linked list implementation with Python:

Questions that arose from this:

  • Constructor overloading
  • Effectively handling exceptions? (best practices)
  • Class organization, protection, etc.? (Node class - private? shared? how?)

Doubly linked list

Circular linked list
