I am very much a beginner and trying to create a linked list, asking the "user" to input 5 or 6 values. My problem is that I don't know the correct terminology or how to store the user's input so that I can create my pointer to the next value and so on. My understanind of the topic is not great, and I think I'm missing a very easy concept. Either way...all I want to do is create the linked list and eventually be able to add more values to it if necessary.
After reading other forums, I understand that ever using the gets() is a bad idea as it has no buffer. Any help or advice is much appreciated.
