A linked list is a dynamic data structure that is both linear and dynamic. A linked list is made up of nodes, each of which has a data field (for storing data values) and a link to the next node in the list.
Data structures such as linked lists and stacks are not included in the C Standard.
A linked list is a collection of data structures linked together via links. A Linked List is a list of items that is made up of a series of links. Each link is connected to a different link. After array, the linked list is the most often used data structure.
Because the data items do not need to be stored contiguously in memory or on disc, the main advantage of a linked list over a conventional array is that the list elements can be easily inserted or removed without reallocating or reorganising the entire structure, whereas restructuring an array at run-time is a much more difficult task.
