- Subject: Status of insque/remque
I am writing a userspace application for an Angstrom Linux distribution (embedded Linux based on kernel 2.6.39) and I need some linked lists. I don't need doubly linked list; simple singly linked list with insert, remove and forward searching are sufficient. Instead of rolling my own, I'd prefer to use one that is already in existence.
I am using glibc 2.12.2 and I see the insque/remque functions under search.h on my system. Before I start using insque/remque, I wanted to verify that there isn't a better linked list interface hiding somewhere in glibc or that there weren't plans to discontinue this interface in the near future. If I want a linked list, is this the interface to use?
