Describe in Detail

How to implement linked list with array vs. structure with pointers.


Implement linked list with array:

Struct Node


int data;

int link;


  • Data stores the info and “link” stores the index in the array of next node.

    Linked list have the bellowing complexity:

    • Access: O (1)

    • Append: O (n)

    • Index: O (n)

  • A linked list API implemented in terms of arrays will behave like an array.

  • Linked list or tree of strict arrays can be implemented using ropes or finger trees or lazy sequences.


  • Dead space in the array not used currently- items taking up memory.

  • Hard to track of free entries after a few insertions and deletion- these free entries could be anywhere.

  • Using array will impose an upper limit on the size of the linked list- or using dynamic allocation it would need to copy the entire old array to new larger location for new array.

Implementation of Linked list with pointer:

  • Linked list with pointer overcomes the limitation of array implementation- at the cost of extra space for pointer.

  • The links are stored at different locations allocated dynamically, with the previous link containing the link to next.


  • With the for loop in insert_node (char, struct **) function and traverse (struct *) function both of which never seem to terminate.
