list

(list routines)

SYNOPSIS

#include <inn/list.h>

struct node { struct node *succ; struct node *pred; };

struct list { struct node *head; struct node *tail; struct node *tailpred; };

void list_new(struct list *list);

struct node *list_addhead(struct list *list, struct node *node);

struct node *list_addtail(struct list *list, struct node *node);

struct node *list_head(struct list *list);

struct node *list_tail(struct list *list);

struct node *list_succ(struct node *node);

struct node *list_pred(struct node *node);

struct node *list_remhead(struct list *list);

struct node *list_remtail(struct list *list);

struct node *list_remove(struct node *node);

struct node *list_insert(struct list *list, struct node *node, struct node *pred);

bool list_isempty(struct list *list);

DESCRIPTION

list_new initialises the list header list so as to create an empty list.

list_addhead adds node to the head of list, returning the node just added.

list_addtail adds node to the tail of list, returning the node just added.

list_head returns a pointer to the the node at the head of list or NULL if the list is empty.

list_tail returns a pointer to the the node at the tail of list or NULL if the list is empty.

list_succ returns the next (successor) node on the list after node or NULL if node was the final node.

list_pred returns the previous (predecessor) node on the list before node or NULL if node was the first node.

list_remhead removes the first node from list and returns it to the caller. If the list is empty NULL is returned.

list_remtail removes the last node from list and returns it to the caller. If the list is empty NULL is returned.

list_remove removes node from the list it is on and returns it to the caller.

list_insert inserts node onto list after the node pred. If pred is NULL then node is added to the head of list.
